evil, and not for evil against good, and recognizing, as be- 
tween peoples and peoples, that "God has made of one

HE FAMILY of McClymonds, of Scotland, Ireland, 
and of the United States, is a part of the ancient Scot- 
tish Clan Lamont. The name itself, McClymonds or 
MacLymont (also spelled McClimans, McLimans, and 
in several others ways), is indicative of its origin: 
"Mac" (abbreviated to "Mc"), meaning "son of," 
and Laumon, who is regarded as the founder of the family in Scot- 
land, although this distinction really belongs to his grandfather, 
Ferchar. The Gaelic name of the Clan Lamont, in fact, is M'Lao- 

[19] 




THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

muinn, which suggests that McClymonds is really an older form than 
Lamont itself. In a letter written in 1699 by the Laird of Lamont, 
further quotation from which will be made subsequently, the writer 
says: "Our first predecessor was McClamine, and in time Scotified 
to Lamont, Lamount, or Larmond." There is a theory that the name 
itself is derived from the Norse word, lagamadr, meaning a "law- 
man," and this may be correct, for, at the period when Laumon's 
grandfather, Ferchar, came from Ireland to Scotland, there were 
many Norse or Scandinavian people in Scotland, or, at least, people 
of that ancestry ; and Viking blood may have come down as a heritage 
to Lamonts and McClymonds through the mother or grandmother of 
Laumon. 

There is difference of opinion as to whether Laumon's father 
was named Malcolm or Giollacoluim, but it is not difficult to see that 
Malcolm might be a "Scotified" form of the Celtic Giollacoluim. 

Through Ferchar, grandfather of Laumon, the McClymonds, 
and their ancestors, the Lamonts, trace descent from the ancient 
monarchs of Ireland, back to the Milesians, and then, far, far in the 
mists of antiquity, to the kings of Scythia, of whom Fenius was in 
the fifth generation from Noah's son, Japhet, from whom the pedi- 
gree is given in the Holy Scriptures to the first parents of the human 
race, Adam and Eve. From Seventeenth Century transcripts of the 
chronicles preserved by the learned monks in Ireland, O'Hart, the 
antiquarian, has recorded this extraordinary lineage, as given here, 
from "Genesis," "in the Beginning," down to Ferchar, the Irish pro- 
genitor of the Clan Lamont of Scotland.

MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

some brief account, other than the ancestral names just listed, of the 
lineage down to this point, will be given here. 

The ancestor in the fifteenth generation from Adam, as given in 
the foregoing lineage, was Nial, who was the great-great-grandson of 
Japhet, son of Noah. His father, Fenius, was king of Scythia. The 
Pharaoh of this period, Pharoah Cingris, invited Nial, because of his 
learning, to come to Egypt, where he bestowed upon him the land of 
Campus Cyrunt, near the Red Sea. Nial married Pharaoh's daugh- 
ter, the Egyptian princess, Scota. She is said to have been the rescuer 
of Moses from the rushes, and by her Nial had a son, Gaodhal, whence 
the name of his descendants, the Gaels, is believed to have been de- 
rived. Nial's story somewhat resembles that of Joseph, for he became 
a minister of Pharaoh in governing Egypt, which he did and wisely 
for many years. From him the River Nile received its name, and he 
introduced many improvements in "regulating its flow," — perhaps 
building dykes or utilizing its vast waters in irrigating the land. When 
Moses led the Israelites from Egypt through the Red Sea and Phar- 
aoh and his hosts were therein drowned, the succeeding authority in 
Egypt or the people, hating Nial and his family, because they had 
taken part with Moses to some extent, (although evidently not com- 
pletely of Moses' following, or they too would have left Egypt with 
him, escaping through the miraculous path of the sea), drove them 
away. They went first to Crete. Here the family lived for some 
time, later returning to Scythia. It is said that they wandered 
through various parts of Europe for several generations, finally set- 
tling in Galicia, in Spain. Here Broegan founded a city, whose name, 
Braganza, was derived from his own. He was seventeenth in descent 
from Nial, the Egyptian minister or governor, and his grandson, 
Milesius, reigned over Galicia for thirty-six years. 

Heber and Heremon, both sons of Milesius, had seen in a vision 
a beautiful island, appearing as their destined home, and, with a band 
of followers, they set forth on a voyage of discovery. At length, as 
they sailed, far off came a glimpse of high blue mountains, glinten 
with gold from the setting sun, and they hailed the welcome land as 
their Dream Isle. Heber landed in Munster and Heremon in Lein- 
ster, and after fierce fighting with the Irish natives the Milesians, as 
the race was now called, conquered and divided the country. Heremon 

I 21] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

became king of Leinster and Connaught ; Heber ruled over Munster ; 
and their nephews, sons of their brother, Ir, took Ulster for their 
share. The mother of Heber and Heremon (who is said to have been 
an Egyptian princess) had accompanied the expedition to Ireland, and 
was slain by the Irish in a battle during the process of the invasion. 
Her name is said to have been the same as that borne by the Egyptian 
princess whom Nial long ago had married, Scota, and this name was 
perpetuated in the glen of Scothin, near Killarney, where, it is said, 
her grave may still be seen. 

The Milesian kings ruled Ireland from this time until the Eng- 
lish, on the invitation of some of the Irish chieftains, fighting among 
themselves, accepted the counsel of Pope Adrian and forced the land 
to peace. 

Many are the tales and legends related of these ancient kings. 
Cormac, who was crowned at Tara in 254 A. D., has been called "the 
most splendid of the pagan monarchs of Ireland," and an old chronicle 
relates that "the world was full of goodness in his time; there were 
fruit and fatness of the land, with abundant produce of the sea ; and 
peace, ease, and contentment." Cormac abdicated the throne in favor 
of his son, Cairbre, or Carbery, for whom he wrote "Instructions for 
a King," containing, said a scribe of olden times, "as goodly principles 
and moral doctrines as Cato or Aristotle did ever write." These 
"Instructions" were preserved by the monks in what is called the 
"Book of Ballymote," and contain much that is beautiful and wise. 
The following are extracts from this book or treatise, written by one 
ancestor of the Clan Lamont (and hence of the McClymonds family) 
to another. 

"A king must exercise patience ; .... he must strictly observe cove- 
nants and agreements ; he must execute the laws with exactitude, but 
with mercy. He .... must perform his promises. He must keep peace 
on his borders and protect his frontiers. When he makes a hosting 
let his cause be just. Let him pay the lawful dues of his vassals. Let 
him honour the nobles, and respect the poets and historians; and 
adore the Great God. 

"It is his duty to exercise boundless charity; to see to the pros- 
perity of agriculture, and the condition of merchandise; to suppress 
falsehoods, and criminal deeds ; to attend the sick .... above all things 

[22] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

to speak the truth, for it is through the truth of a king God gives pros- 
perity and favorable seasons." 

To the question of Carbery, concerning the chief of a king's 
duties, Cormac answers : 'The lifting up of good men, and the sup- 
pression of evil doers; the giving of freedom to those who do well, 
and the restriction of the unjust." He taught that a nation should 
have "frequent convocations of wise men to investigate its affairs and 
abolish unwise laws;" that "the Government should be in the hands 
of the nobles ; and the chieftains should be upright ; and the study of 
every art and language should be encouraged." When a king enter- 
tained visitors he was advised by Cormac to "light the lamp and wel- 
come his guests with clapping of hands .... to have nimble cup bearers 
to serve them; to have moderate music, short stories, and a welcom- 
ing countenance, and to make a cheerful and pleasant conversation 
before the learned." "A king," wrote Cormac, "should be chosen for 
his noble appearance and birth; for his experience and wisdom; his 
prudence and magnanimity; his eloquence; his bravery in battle;. . . . 
He must be without personal blemish of any sort; easy of access and 
affable ; mild in peace and fierce in war ; beloved by his people .... He 
is to support orphans ; to be cheerful with his intimates, and to appear 
splendid as the sun at the banquet of the Mead House .... of Tara." 

This remarkable thinker, whose judgment and ideals appear many 
centuries ahead of his own era, and whose precepts, it is said, were 
recited at the coronation of the Irish kings, was described in the 
"Book of Ballymote:" "His hair was slightly curled and of golden 
colour; a scarlet shield with engraved devices and golden hoops and 
clasps of silver. A wide flowing purple cloak on him, with a gem-set 
gold brooch on his breast, and a gold torque around his neck. A 
white collared shirt, embroidered with gold, upon him. And a girdle 
with golden buckles, and studded with precious stones around him. 
Two golden net-work sandals with golden buckles upon them. Two 
spears with golden sockets, and many red bronze rivets, in his hand, 
while he stood in the full glow of beauty without defect or blemish." 

The continuation of the pedigree from Adam to the Scottish 
founder of the Clan Lamont, follows, beginning with the thirty- 
seventh ancestor in the lineage, Heremon, one of the conquerors of 
Ireland, and son of King Milesius of Galicia in Spain, as has been 
stated.

and the latter's son, Muireadach. But the latter finally drove the 
Three Collas from Ireland and became Monarch. 86. Eochaidh 
Muigh-Meadhoin, 124th Monarch. 87. Niall Mor, son of the forego- 
ing by his second marriage, to a British princess. Niall was 126th 
Monarch, and was known as "Niall of the Nine Hostages," from the 
fact that he held as hostages nine kings or princes whom he had con- 
quered in battle. During his reign Saint Patrick was brought to Ire- 
land, as a captive slave, and it was during the reign of one of his sons, 
Laeghaire (Leary), 128th Monarch, that the " Apostle of Ireland" 
returned as a missionary to evangelize the pagan Celts. But it was 
another son, as follows, who was ancestor of the Clan Lamont. 88. 
Eoghan (Owen), Prince of Ulster, was baptized by Saint Patrick. 
From his, Tyrone received its name of Tir-Eoghan, "Land of Owen." 
89. Muireadach married Earca, daughter of Loarn, King of Dalriada 
in Scotland, and two, at least, of his sons were, from their mother's 
name, called "Mac Earca." From one of these, Fergus Mor Mac 
Earca, descended the Scottish kings, while, through the marriage of 
Matilda of Scotland to King Henry I of England, the English royal 
House to this day can claim the ancient ancestry as traced in this 
lineage, down to Fergus Mor. 90. Muirceartach Mor, called Mac 
Earca, 131st Monarch. 91. Donal Ilchealgach, 134th Monarch, who 
reigned jointly with his brother, Fergus, for three years, both dying 
of the Plague on the same day in the year 561. 92. Aodh (Hugh), 
Prince of Ulster and 143rd Monarch. He fell in battle, in 607. 93. 
Maolfreach, Prince of Ulster. 94. Maoldoon, Prince of Ulster. 

95. Fargal, 156th Monarch, killed by the King of Leinster, 718. He 
married Aithiochta, daughter of Cein O'Connor, King of Connaught. 

96. Niall Frassach, 162nd Monarch, called "Frassach" because of three 
miraculous showers said to have fallen during his reign : "a shower of 
honey, a shower of money, and a shower of blood." (It would seem 
that in every reign of these old Irish kings a shower of blood fell, for 
few of them lived without fierce battles or died natural deaths.) Niall 
reigned for seven years, then entered the Monastery of Saint Colum- 
ba, where he died in 773. 97. Aodh Ordnigh, 164th Monarch, was 
slain in battle, 817. 98. Niall Caille, 166th Monarch. 99. Aodh Finn- 
liath, 168th Monarch, won many victories over the Danes, who had 
taken Dublin in his father's reign. He married Maclmare (Mary),

Knight, living in 1269, ancestor of the Clan Lamont. 

Besides Giollacoluim, or Malcolm, father of Sir Ladhman, 
Ferchar had sons Duncan and David, the latter a priest, and living in 
1270. Duncan, known as Duncan Mac Ferchar, was living in 1270, 
1292, 1296, and had a son, Sorley, ancestor of the Maa Sorley family 
of Argyllshire, which later assumed the surname of Lamont, as know- 
ing themselves of common ancestry with the Clan descended from 
Ferchar's grandson, Sir Ladhman. 

The Plaid or Tartan of the Clan Lamont, with its blue, green, 
and black, is described in an ancient manuscript, as follows: "Clan 
Lawmond hath settis lyk unto the Cambels, quham near to thai have 
ye lyuand (settis of blwe and settis of grene, and ye dark sett hath 
fyrst ain bordure or lyste of blak, and near to be ynwarde syd yroff 
tua sprangis of blak of four threiddis, neverthelesse, ye haill blewe 
settis be not of ye lyk pattron, bot ylk ither ane lakethe ye sprangis be 
ye lystis, and hathe twa yegidder through ye mydward of ye sett) bot 
yn the mydward of ye ylk greine sette thai haue ane quhite sprang all 
anerlye (of aucht threidis or ten)." The beautiful colors of the La- 
mont Tartan, blue, green, black, and white, are sometimes arranged 
so as to give a rich, vivid effect, and sometimes the tints used are pale, 
delicate Springtime hues. In an address before the Clan Lamont 
Society at Glasgow, in 19 10, reference was made to "the illustrious 
Lamont. . . ., his shoulders girt with Tyrian purple." The wearing 
of the Tartan was anciently confined to persons of some rank, but 
the custom prevailed, it is said, among the early Celtic inhabitants of 
England and Ireland, as well as the Scotch. 

[26] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

In 1730 the following description of the Highland Clans and 
their branches was written, under the title, "Letters from an Officer 
of Engineers to His Friend in London:'' "The Highlanders are divided 
into tribes or Clans, under chiefs or chieftains, and each Clan is 
again divided into branches from the main stock, who have chieftains 
over them. They are sub-divided into smaller branches of fifty or 
sixty men, who deduce their original from their particular chieftains, 
and rely upon them as their more immediate protectors and 
defenders." 

The Lamont Coat-of-Arms is blazoned: Arms — Azure, a lion 
rampant argent. Crest — A hand couped at the wrist, proper. Motto 
— Ne parcas nee spernas — "Neither spare nor spurn!" The head of 
the Clan has the right to use heraldic Supporters, two wild men, one 
on each side of the shield. 

The lion as a charge and the open hand are found in O'Neill 
blazons, and doubtless the Lamont Arms were first used with full 
intent to indicate heraldically the Clan's descent from the O'Neills of 
Ireland. "The Red Hand of Ulster," of which the Lamonts' ancestors 
were Kings, as shown in the pedigree given, is a familiar symbol. 

The Scottish Clans have their special music for the bagpipes, and 
that of the Lamonts is as follows: for Lament, "The Wanderer's 
Lament ;" for Salute, "A Thousand Welcomes to Thee, Lamont ;" for 
March, "Captain Lamont's March." The Badge of the Clan is the 
Crab Apple Tree or the Dryas. 

The home of the Lamonts in Scotland was from early times in 
Argyllshire. Here was their ancient stronghold, Toward Castle, 
opposite Rothesay, on the Firth of Clyde, near Toward Point, which 
is a headland the north side of Kyles of Bute, having a lighthouse. 
The Castle is two miles west of the Point, and stands a few hundred 
yards inland. It is now in ruins, practically all that remains being 
the ancient keep and a courtyard. "In 1646 it was the scene of a 
bloody tragedy, .... an attempt to exterminate the whole clan. The 
castle was besieged by the Campbells, and forced to surrender, when 
horrible cruelties were perpetuated by the latter on some two hundred 
vassals and servants of Sir James Lamont. It is believed that not less 
than thirty-six of them were hanged at Toward. The castle is sup- 
posed never to have been inhabited after this event.*

This period, that of England's civil war between the adherents 
of the Scotch Stuart Kings of Great Britain and the Parliamentary 
Party, was fruitful in private feuds and conflicts, and the Campbells' 
attack on Toward and on another Lamont estate, Ascog, and on the 
Lamont country in general was of this nature. The head of the Clan 
at this time was Sir James Lamont. He was hunted for his life, some 
two hundred of the Clan were massacred, and, as stated, thirty-six 
were hanged at Toward, these, says a writer, being "gentlemen of 
the name of Lamont/' and all being "hanged on a single ash tree." 
When, at the restoration of Charles II, the Campbell Marquess of 
Argyll was on trial for high treason, for which crime he was executed, 
the attack on Toward Castle and its resulting murders was among 
the chief counts against him. 

It is tradition that one of the Lamont ancestors, possibly through 
a maternal line but of an early period, was Angus Mac Rory. He is 
called Lord of Bute and is believed to have obtained a charter from 
the Crown of Lower Cowall. His son, James, had a daughter, Jean, 
who, in 1242, married Alexander, the High Steward, ancestor of the 
Royal Stewarts. "The Lamonds were the most ancient proprietors of 
Cowall, and. .. .the Stewarts, Maclachlans, and Campbells, obtained 
their possessions in that district by marriage with daughters of that 
family, at an early period. Most of Cowall is in Perthshire, but a 
part of Upper Cowall was formerly in Argyllshire, where all the 
Lamont lands seem to have been located. 

As has been said, Ascog was another castle of the Lamonts de- 
stroyed as was Toward by the Campbells in 1646. The branch of the 
family seated at Ascog was that originally known as Lamont of Ardla- 
mont, some of the Clan holding lands called "The Ard" as early as 
1356. Some two hundred years later John Lamont of Ardlamont 
altered his title to John Lamont of Ascog. A modern mansion, Ardla- 
mont House, is at Ardlamont Point, a headland in Argyllshire, 
between Loch Pyne and Kyles of Bute. 

Another cadet branch is that of the Lamonts of Knockdow, 
descending from Geoffrey, or Gorre (the patronymic of this branch 
being anciently M'Gorre), son of John Lamont, Lord of Inverchaolain, 
who was living in 1431. This branch is said to be the only one of the 
Lamonts which still holds its early lands. 

[28] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

Other lines descend from Walter Lamont, legitimated in 1581, 
as son of Sir John Lamont of Inveryne, this branch known as of 
Auchagoyll (now Otter); from Patrick Lamont, living in 1450, and 
designated as of Auchinshellich, or Willowf ield ; from Robert Lamont, 
the third of the legitimate sons of the above-mentioned Sir John of 
Inveryne, and designated of Silvereraigs. 

One of the earliest, perhaps the earliest, record of the Lamonts 
in Scotland is of the granting of a charter to the monks of Paisley, in 
Renfrewshire, conveying to them lands in Kilmun, Kilfinan, and Kil- 
mory. This charter was given in the first half of the Thirteenth Cen- 
tury, about 1238, by "Duncanus filius Ferchar" and "Lanmanus filius 
Malcomi nepos ejusdem Dancani," that is to say, Ferchar's son, Dun- 
can, and Lauman, son of Malcolm, and nephew of the said Duncan. 
These grantors, Lauman being the founder of the Lamont family, 
have above been traced, through the Irish kings, back to the beginning 
of the human race. The charter refers to some of the lands bestowed 
as those "quas nos et antecessores nostri apnd Kilmun habnerunt," 
that is, "which we and our ancestors held at Kilmun, " which is, of 
course, very significant, as denoting the Lamont's possessions at a 
still earlier period in Scotland. John Lamont the Eighth of Inveryne, 
in 1466, confirmed his ancestor's grant to Paisley Abbey. It was his 
nephew, John Lamont the Tenth of Inveryne, two of whose sons, Wal- 
ter and Robert, are mentioned above as founding cadet branches of 
the family. 

This John the Tenth of Inveryne, as a reward for his gallant 
service in the wars in France and elsewhere, had his lands erected 
into a Barony, and received the honor of knighthood. Mary, Queen 
of Scots, in 1563, visited him at Toward Castle, and there planted a 
tree. His wife was Lady Jean Campbell, a daughter of Archibald, 
second Earl of Argyll, but this Campbell blood in the Lamont lineage 
did not prevent the massacre at Toward, as described above. 

Other particularly distinguished Chiefs of the Clan were Sir 
Colin, a Member of Parliament in 1630, and a generous benefactor to 
Glasgow University; Sir James, during whose rule Toward Castle 
was destroyed, also a Member of Parliament ; the latter's son, Archi- 
bald, who in turn represented Argyllshire, as had his father and his 
grandfather, the above Sir Colin. In 1907, the Chief of the Lamonts

was Major John Henry Lamont, who was born in 1854. His father 
was Archibald James Lamont, Esq., of Lamont, born in 1818, son of 
Major-General John Lamont of Lamont, who died in 1827, and whose 
wife was Rebecca, daughter of John Hobbs. The father of Major- 
General John Lamont was John Lamont, Esq., of Lamont, who mar- 
ried, in 1773, Helen Campbell. 

The following "Missive Letter" from the Laird of Lamont to 
Bourdon of Feddal, concerning their Lamont ancestry is of exceeding 
great interest, and its statements are, in the main, borne out by the 
facts, as known from other sources. It was found in the Advocates' 
Library at Edinburgh, among the manuscripts of Alexander Nisbet, 
the celebrated Herald.

Larmond, as you will find in the old books of Heraldrie in the Lion's

ignorant of Heraldrie and fearing affinity with the Kings of Ireland

and taken my honourable Globe, but the Lamonts of France and Eng-

The writer of the foregoing letter was mistaken in one point, — 
that is, in his belief that the "Glob of the World" was an earlier ckarge 
in the Lamont Arms than the "Whit Lion," and also in his theory 
that the lion was adopted by his predecessors (as he seems to imply), 
to link them with Scotland, whose Arms bear a lion rampant, rather 
than with the ancieat Kings of Ireland. As has been stated above, 
the Lamont Arms, with the lion rampant argent (a "Whit Lion") and 
the open hand, evidence, by the said charge and Crest, the descent of 
the Lamonts from the House of O'Neill, in whose Coat-Armor both 
lion and open hand also appear. It is true that one blazon of Lamont 
Arms is azure, a mound or, the Crest and Motto being the same as 
those described above, — that is, for Crest, a hand couped at the wrist, 
proper, and, for Motto, Ne parcas nee spernas. But this is evidently 
an adoption of a charge, the mound, for the purpose of a play on the 
supposed derivation, or, perhaps, the pronunciation of the name. Pos- 
sibly some Seventeenth Century seeker after new fashions had sought 
to convince himself or his kinsfolk that their name was derived from 
the French la monde, the world, but all chroniclers of the early his-

tory of the Clan Lamont indicate Laman or Laumanus as the founder 
of the family, and its name's origin. Hence, we may accept Mac 
Laman (McClymonds or McLimans), as "son of Laman," since, as 
has been stated, the Sept of McClymonds descended from the Clan 
Lamont. 

II 

The earliest known ancestor in the direct lineage with which the 
present study is concerned was John McClymonds, probably born 
either in Scotland, or possibly in northern Ireland, whence many peo- 
ple of Scotch ancestry came to America in the Eighteenth Century. 

So far as an exhaustive examination of all documentary sources 
in many Pennsylvania Counties can determine the career of John 
McClymonds, prior to his settlement in Butler County, in that State, 
this critical research among original evidences being also fortified by 
a process of elimination, the following has been deduced as his his- 
tory, from the year 1779, with records apparently referring to him 
of, possibly, 1778. 

Although the name is found variously spelled in the old records, 
the form "McClymonds" has been generally adopted for use in this 
study, except where quotations are made in which different orthog- 
raphies are followed. 

There are several references to John McClymonds as a soldier 
of the War of the American Revolution, the dates of these ranging 
from 1778 to 1783. In a list of "Soldiers of the Revolution who re- 
ceived pay for their services, " made from a manuscript record, 
entitled "Rangers on the Frontiers, 1 778-1 783," there appear, under 
the heading, "Bedford County," the names of "McClanan, John, pri- 
vate" and "McClarnan, John, private." Again, under a Revolutionary 
War record, entitled "A List of Receipts & Payments to the Militia 
Bedford County," is the following: 

L Sums 

"John McCermons 10 17 o 

John McCermons, for 

his father, 1 2 o" 

[32] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

Whether this record indicates that John McClymonds ("McCer- 
mons") was the son of a senior John, it is not possible to say. In 1773 
a William "McClamon" was a tax-payer in Bedford County, while 
Samuel McClymonds (his name spelled "McClemans" and "McLai- 
mans") was a taxable in 1783 and 1784. This William McClymonds 
was a resident of Spring Hill Township, while Samuel lived in Sherley 
Township. 

Among the Revolutionary soldiers who received payments known 
as "Depreciation Pay," and listed as a private, was recorded "John 
McClarman" of the Bedford County Militia. While in "The Class 
Role of Capten Davee Company of Militia of Bedford County" "John 
McClomen" appears as having "Served." As "John McClomens," 
John McClymonds' name is given in "A list of the inhabitants of 
Providence Township made subject by law to the performance of 
Militia Duty taken by Peter Morgert the 27th Jany. 1789." As will 
be seen John McClymonds was a resident of Providence Township, 
at least from the year 1787. In this same last-mentioned list is the 
name of "William McClimens," of whom much will be discussed sub- 
sequently. On May 19, 1786, "Robt. McCleman" was one of a list 
headed "The Under named Persons Is as folows for the Election for 
officers for Companey of Part of Providence Township and Part of 
Cold Rain Vzt." "Cold Rain" is the recorder's spelling of Coleraine. 
Among the Revolutionary records of Bedford County, "James McCle- 
mon" was one of the "May Class Role of Capt. Charles Taggart." 

From the foregoing records, some refer evidently to John McCly- 
monds of Providence Township, Bedford County, while others refer 
probably to his relatives. Although we cannot definitely state his 
name, it appears probable that John McClymonds' father was, like his 
son, a Revolutionary soldier, and thus we have one more generation 
of the McClymonds ancestry in America, although, as noted above, 
John McClymonds, later of Butler County, Pennsylvania, probably 
was himself born in either Scotland or Ireland. 

Mention has been made above of John McClymonds' service as a 
"Ranger of the Frontier," during the War of the Revolution, and as 
having received "Depreciation Pay" for his services. The following 
explanation of "Depreciation Pay" is appropriate*. "During the late

On September 17, 1779, John and William "McClimans" pur- 
chased, for six hundred pounds, all the rights of a certain William 
McComb in two hundred and fifty acres of land in Bedford County, 
Pennsylvania. This land's history was as follows. On August 9, 
1766, James Foley made application for it to the Land Office of the 
Proprietors of Pennsylvania. On February 16, 1770, the said James 
Foley deeded his rights under the application to William McComb, and 
the latter, as stated, sold his title in the property to John and William 
McClymonds. It was situated on the north-west side of what was 
known as the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River, bounded on the 
north by land of Elizabeth Tussey and on the south by land of Chris- 
tian or Christopher Miller. On August 26, 1788, John McClymonds 
and his wife, Mary, and William McClymonds (the latter apparently 
then unmarried, since no reference in the deed appears of a wife's 
joint transfer, with him, of the property), for three hundred and 
eighty pounds, sold to Adam Countz of Bedford County this entire

property, or, rather, their entire rights in the same, for an actual patent 
for the outright ownership of the land had not been granted. 

John McClymonds made application for two hundred acres of 
unimproved land in Providence Township, Bedford County, on April 
24, 1787, and a survey of this land was ordered made to him on May 
7, 1787, by ''his Eccellency Benjamin Franklin Esqr President of the 
Supreme Executive Council." This tract was given the name of 
"Brunswick," and was patented to John McClymonds on March 19, 
1789. In the patent, it was described, doubtless more accurately than 
in the application for and granting of its survey, as containing one 
hundred and eighty-nine and a quarter acres, instead of two hundred 
acres, and its location was thus set forth : 

"Brunswick situate in Providence Township Bedford County 
Beginning at an Iron wood tree at Raystown Branch of Iuniatta 
thence by one Sparks Claim South .... to a Red Oak thence by War- 
rior Ridge South .... East .... to a pine and South .... West to a 
Black Oak thence by vacant land South .... to a White Oak North .... 
East .... to a post in the line of William Thompsons land thence by 
the same North. . . .West. . . .to a post in the line of James Elliotts 
land thence by the same North .... to the place of beginning, Contain- 
ing one hundred & Eighty nine acres & a quarter." 

On April 1, 1795, John McClymonds and his wife, Mary, then 
still residents of Providence Township, Bedford County, deeded 
"Brunswick" to Valentine Holler of the same Township. The price 
paid was two hundred pounds. Valentine Holler died intestate, and 
the Orphans' Court of Bedford County gave this land (with, appar- 
ently, other land adjoining, since the whole property was said to con- 
tain two hundred and sixty- four acres and eighty-six perches), April 
16, 1832, to Solomon Holler. On May 15, 1837, a new patent was 
issued for this land to Solomon Holler. 

In the year 1790, when the first Census of the State of Penn- 
sylvania was taken, the following persons of variant forms of the 
name McClymonds were listed as heads of households: Bedford 
County. McClimans, John. His family, besides himself, consisted 
of two boys under sixteen years of age, and of two women or girls, 
doubtless his wife, Mary, of the above-cited land transactions, and a 
daughter. McClemens, Mary. In her family, besides herself, were a 

[39] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

boy under sixteen and a woman or girl, age unspecified. William 
"McCimmens" was probably an error for "McClimans," as this 
name appears in the list just above the said John McClimans of the 
Census, and as it is known that the William McClimans of Bedford 
County who served in the Revolution, as above noted, was living a 
number of years after the year 1790, as will subsequently be shown. 
This William "McCimmens" had in his household, besides himself, a 
boy under sixteen and a "female," — doubtless his wife. There were 
also listed in this Census, as of Bedford County, a Mary "Mccimei" 
with a boy under sixteen; and a James "McCiney" with five boys 
under sixteen and three "females." These two may be badly misspelled 
forms of the name McClymonds. It is possible that the Mary "McCle- 
mens" mentioned above, of the 1790 Census, of Bedford County, was 
the mother of John McClymonds, and a widow at the time of the 
Census ; but this is, of course, only surmise. Huntingdon County. 
McClimens, Samuel. In his household, besides himself, were two boys 
under sixteen, and six "females." Washington County. McClem- 
ments, David. Besides himself, there were in his household, a boy or 
man over sixteen, three under sixteen, and six "females." 

In the case of all the men listed in 1790 as heads of households 
in Pennsylvania, as they have just been given, only the last named, 
David McClemments of Washington County, had in his family a son 
over sixteen, — assuming that the "male" mentioned in his household 
was his son, as is probable. Therefore, it is probable that the others 
listed were all comparatively young men and of similar age. There 
was but one John among those listed, as has been shown, and he was 
of Bedford County. As will appear subsequently, the John McCly- 
monds of Butler County a few years later had a son born in 1778, and 
was, therefore, over sixteen at the time of the 1790 Census. There- 
fore, there seems clear evidence that the John McClymonds of Butler 
County, of whom hereafter, was the John "McClimans" of the 1790 
Census of Bedford County. 

So, also, it seems evident that the William McClimans of Bedford 
County, Revolutionary soldier, and who bought rights to property with 
John McClimans, joining with the latter in the conveyance of the same 
later on, was closely related to the said John, and probably his 
brother. The possibility that he was the father of John was carefully 

[40] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

considered; but all the indications are that he was of similar age to 
John himself. For example, in the sale of their right to the Foley- 
McComb survey of two hundred and fifty acres in Bedford County, 
dated August 26, 1788, while, as noted above, the name of John's wife, 
Mary, appears as joining in the transfer, no wife of William is men- 
tioned, which would indicate that he was then unmarried. Also, as 
will appear, William McClimans is stated to have been born in Scot- 
land, and to have come to this country with his parents. All that has 
been learned of the history of this William McClimans confirms the 
belief that he was the brother of John McClimans or McClymonds. 
There follows an account of this William, subsequent to the Revolu- 
tion, and not including those references to him in conjunction with 
John McClymonds' history which have already been cited. 

Before beginning this account, however, it will be advisable to 
study the outline of history of the formation of Bedford County, in 
order to understand why, at different dates, the same land was 
located in different Counties. Bedford County was erected in 1771 
from part of Cumberland County. Cumberland County was erected 
in 1750 from part of Lancaster County. Lancaster County was 
erected in 1729 from Chester County. Chester was one of the three 
original Counties of Pennsylvania, the other two being Philadelphia 
and Bucks. Westmoreland County was set off from part of Bedford 
County in 1773. 

If, as seems very probable (as has above been stated), the William 
"McCimmens" of the 1790 Census of Bedford County was really the 
William McClymonds or McClimans (as his name was generally 
spelled) of whom foregoing records have been given, it appears that 
he removed to Westmoreland County soon after the year of the 
Census. On November 13, 1793, William "MClemans" of Westmore- 
land County, with his wife, Mary, sold to Henry Holler of Providence 
Township, Bedford County, their rights in a Warrant for three hun- 
dred acres in Providence Township. This Warrant had been issued 
to George Smith, September 2, 1785, and rights under it had evidently 
been obtained by William McClymonds, between the last date and the 
above-mentioned date of his deed to Henry Holler, who paid but "nine 
pound" for this large tract, — or, at least, for the rights in it held by 
William McClymonds and his wife. The land was described as 

[41] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

"adjoining land of Allison on the south of Tussey's Mountain on the 
east by the Warrior ridge and the north by a survey of Charles 
Sparks in Providence Township." 

William "McClimens" witnessed the will of George McCartney 
in Westmoreland County, September 20, 1794. The will was proved 
December 25, 1794, and mentioned the testator's wife, Elizabeth, a 
son, Andrew, other children (all minors), whose names are not given, 
brother, Samuel McCartney, who was an executor, the other executors 
being the wife and William McFarland. The other witnesses, besides 
William McClimens were Patrick Jack and Joseph McCartney. There 
is no indication of relationship between the testator and William 
McClimens. 

On August 3, 1802, William "McClimans" and his wife, Mary, 
of "Armstrong Township County of Westmoreland and State of 
Pennsylvania" sold, for four hundred dollars, to John Compton of the 
same Township eighty-one and three-quarters acres and twenty-eight 
perches, this land being in the said Township and County. What was 
Armstrong Township in Westmoreland County, or land closely ad- 
joining it, became part of Armstrong County in 1800. Armstrong 
County was erected that year from parts of Westmoreland, Allegheny, 
and Lycoming Counties. Reference will subsequently be made to 
McClymonds records in Armstrong County, but here will be resumed 
the history of William McClymonds. 

About 1798 or 1799 he removed (either from Westmoreland or 
Armstrong County) to Mercer County, Pennsylvania. Mercer 
County was set off in 1800. It "lies between Crawford on the north, 
and Beaver on the south, on the line dividing Pennsylvania and Ohio. 
. . . .Eastward. . . .bounded by Venango County,. . . .the southeast jut- 
ting on Butler County, . . . . " Its southern boundary is the northern 
line of Lawrence County. 

William McClimans (McClymonds) lived in the northeast part 
of West Salem Township, in Mercer County. He is said to have been 
born in Scotland, and to have immigrated with his parents to Virginia, 
prior to the Revolutionary War, to have served in that war, and later 
to have settled in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. His wife was Mary 
Ritchey, "a lady of Irish parentage," and they had two children, John 
F. McClimans and Margaret McClimans, who married William 

[42] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

McMillen. All this is correct, with the probable exception of the state- 
ment that he settled in Bedford County after the Revolution. As 
shown above, William McClimans served in the Revolution from 
Bedford County. Consideration should also be given to the state- 
ment, made at the outset of this special McClymonds lineage descend- 
ing from John McClymonds of Butler County (almost certainly the 
brother of the William McClimans of Bedford, Westmoreland, and 
Mercer Counties), that the said John McClymonds was of Scofch- 
Irish parentage. But, whether or not he was born in Ireland, he was, 
of course, of very ancient Scottish ancestry, as has been noted. 

Just when William McClimans became a resident of West Salem 
Township is not known. In 1800 he was listed as a taxable in Irwin 
Township. His will was dated July 21, 1825, and was probated on 
September 17, 1825, which fixes his death-date as between these two. 

The wife of William McClimans, Mary Ritchey, died in 1854. 
She was mentioned in her father's will, made June 30, 181 7, and pro- 
bated March 11, 1829. He was John Ritchey, of Providence Town- 
ship, Bedford County, Pennsylvania, and calls himself, in his will, 
"Farmer." In this document, he mentions "my beloved son George 
Ritchey. . . .my daughter Jane. . . .intermarried with John Lowrey" 
(to whom he bequeathes "the one half of the Legacy willed to me by 
my uncle John Little"), also mentioning "my following children Viz: 
Mary who is intermarried with William McClemons, James Ritchey, 
George Ritchey and Thomas Ritchey." He makes his "son George 
Ritchey and my friend Doctor John Anderson of Bedford Executors." 
In a codicil, dated March 29, 1828, he refers to his "Daughter Mary 
who is intermarried with William McClimans." In his will, John 
Ritchey provided that his daughter, Mary, should receive a fourth part 
of the proceeds of the sale of some two hundred and seven acres of 
"land called 'Richland' Situate on the South side of the Raystown 
branch of Juniata River about five miles above the Crossings, for- 
merly in the County of Cumberland now in the County of Bedford," 
as the property is described in an indenture, made November 3, 1829, 
between Mary McClimans ("McClemans") of West Salem Township, 
Mercer County, Pennsylvania, and George Ritchey of Providence 
Township, Bedford County, in which indenture the grantor releases to 
the said George Ritchey all her rights in this land. "Richland" was 

[43] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

granted to Mary McClimans' father, John Ritchey, by Patent dated 
July 13, 1792. 

John McClymonds removed from Westmoreland County, Penn- 
sylvania, to Butler County, that State, in 1798, bringing with him his 
family. He resided in what is now Brady Township. The locality of 
his home will be further mentioned subsequently, but it is important 
to study the possible location of his residence in Westmoreland County. 
It is very probable that his home in Westmoreland County was in the 
present Armstrong County, as will be seen. Armstrong Township 
was erected in Westmoreland County, April 6, 1773. The bounds of 
the Township were thus defined: "Beginning where the line of the 
county crosses the Connemach, then running with that river to the 
town of Fairfield, along that line to the Loyal Haunon, then down 
the Loyal Hannon and the Kiskiminetas to the Allegheny, then up the 
Allegheny to the Kittaning, then with a straight line to the head waters 
of Two Lick or Black Lick Creek, and thence with a straight line to 
the beginning/' As stated above, when Armstrong County was 
erected, in 1800, from parts of Allegheny, Westmoreland, and Lycom- 
ing Counties, what had been Armstrong Township, Westmoreland 
County, was included in Armstrong County. 

When Armstrong was erected into a County, it consisted of but 
two townships, Allegheny and Buffalo, although Toby Township was 
very soon organized. On March 24, 1803, an Act authorized the 
Courts of the Counties of Pennsylvania to form new Townships, or to 
alter or divide those already in existence, on presentation of proper 
petitions by the people toward these ends. In 1805 such a petition was 
made by residents of Armstrong County, the Court appointed three 
Commissioners, Robert Beatty, John Corbett, and John McDowell, to 
take charge of the laying out plans for the new Townships desired, 
and they made their report and recommendations in September, 1806. 
They stated that Armstrong County should be divided into six Town- 
ships, and offered the Court drafts of the outlines of these, as, in 
their opinions, the boundaries should be set. Their plan for the sixth 
of these proposed Townships, to be named Sugar Creek, was as fol- 
lows: "beginning at the mouth of Limestone run, on the Allegheny 
river, thence up said river to the line of Armstrong county, thence 
along said line to the line of Buffalo township, thence east along said 

[44] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

line to the place of beginning." The "line of Armstrong County" 
mentioned was the northwest corner of the County. The draft for 
the boundaries of Buffalo Township by the Commissioners was: 
"beginning at the mouth of the Buffalo creek, thence up the Allegheny 
river to the mouth of Limestone run, thence west to the line of Buf- 
falo township, thence along said line to the place of beginning." The 
Commissioners' report was accepted and confirmed by the Court, Sep- 
tember 1 8, 1806, which thus became the date of the organization of 
Sugar Creek Township, in which it appears that John McClymonds 
was living just prior to his settlement in Butler County, adjoining. 

In 1830 parts of Buffalo and Sugar Creek Townships were taken 
to form the Township of Franklin, and in 1868 the last was sub- 
divided into East and West Franklin Townships. It was in East 
Franklin that a Thomas McClymonds lived, as early as 1799, if not 
before, and it is probable, as follows below, that this was the actual 
locality of John McClymonds' residence prior to his settlement in the 
adjoining Butler County. As has been shown, in 1799, — the year after 
the stated date of his removal from "Westmoreland County" to But- 
ler, — the above-described locality in the present Armstrong County 
was still a part of Westmoreland. Thus, it may be accepted that John 
McClymonds lived in the present Armstrong, rather than in the pres- 
ent Westmoreland. 

On May 29, 1804, "Thomas McClymonds of Armstrong County 
Farmer," together with Archibald McCall, a Philadelphia merchant, 
and Robert McKinley, made application for a Warrant of Survey on 
a tract of four hundred acres in Armstrong County. This tract ad- 
joined lands belonging to James Gibson and Samuel Henry, and the 
said Thomas McClymonds stated, in the application, that this land was 
first improved on in October, 1798, that he had settled on it in April, 
1799, and that "he hath a house Erected in which he now Lives." 
Attached to the application is an affidavit, as follows :

It has been stated that Thomas McClymonds did not remain long 
on this tract of land, and it may be that he removed to Butler County, 
where John McClymonds had already removed. The relationship 
between the two men has not been established, but it seems probable 
that Thomas was the son of John of Butler County. The latter, as 
will be shown, had a son, Thomas, though little is known of the latter. 

The present territory of Butler County was taken from Allegheny 
County in 1800. Allegheny County was formed from Westmoreland 
and Washington Counties, 1788. Westmoreland, as stated above, was 
set off from Bedford County in 1773, Washington was formed in 
1 781 from Westmoreland. The outline of Bedford County's evolution 
has also been given. Butler is bounded by Venango County on the 
north; by Allegheny County on the south; by Armstrong County on 
the east ; and on the west by Beaver, Lawrence, and Mercer Counties. 
Erected in 1800, the County was, in 1803, divided into six election 
districts, and thirteen townships were laid out in 1804. Later divisions 
and subdivisions have been made, and Muddy Creek Township, 
where, as will be shown, John McClymonds lived, was sub-divided 
until, at present, its former territory covers Worth, Brady, Muddy

Creek, and Franklin Townships. Brady is in the northern central 
part of the County. 

In the deed, cited above, of April i, 1795, whereby John McCly- 
monds of Providence Township, Bedford County, sold his estate, 
known as "Brunswick," to Valentine Holler, his wife, joining in the 
transaction, was named Mary. It is probable that she died between 
1795 and the date of his removal to Westmoreland County, and thence 
to Butler County, for no record has been found in either County of 
this wife. At any rate, when John McClymonds died in Butler County, 
prior to October 28, 181 7, Elizabeth McClymonds was undoubtedly 
his widow's name. He left no will, and. she signed the following on 
the said date: 

"These are to mak knowing to All whome it may

On the same date, as a result of the above statement of Elizabeth 
McClymonds, Thomas McClymonds, William McClymonds, and John 
Cornelius, all of Butler County, were bonded, in the sum of six hun- 
dred dollars, the document of the bond stating: "The condition of this 
obligation is such, that if the within bounden Thomas McClymonds

On November 4, 18 17, Benjamin Jack and Robert Glenn appeared 
before Hugh Henderson, Justice of the Peace for Butler County, and 
made deposition that the inventory which they presented was "a true 
appraisment of the property of John McClymons Deceased so far as 
was given in to these Deponents." No land was mentioned in the inven- 
tory which listed a few cattle, household and farm implements, furni- 
ture, supplies, etc. The total value was incorrectly added as $214.90; 
but was really $284.90. Following the inventory is the "Memorandum 
of Articles Sold at the Vendue of the Estate of John McClymonds." 
The articles mentioned are practically the same as in the aforesaid 
inventory, but the persons who made purchases are named, as well as 
the amounts. The persons were: John Campbell, John Cornelius, 
William McClymonds, David Mcjunkins, James Mcjunkins, John 

[49] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Wigton, John Mcjunkins, Edward Douglas, John Thompson, James 
Clark, Isaac Cornelius, Andrew Stoughton, Charles Coulter, William 
Davis, Thomas McClymonds, Benjamin Jack, John "Emry," David 
Davis, "Isac" Cornelius, John Week, "the widow," James Awlsworth. 
The relationships of some of these purchasers to John McClymonds 
will be shown subsequently. 

The mention, in the Administration Bond, quoted above, of the 
Orphans' Court of Butler County perhaps indicates that John McCly- 
monds, by his second marriage, to Elizabeth, had minor children at 
the time of his death, or, possibly, one such minor child, or that there 
was the prospect of a posthumous heir. It is evident that most of his 
children were adults at the time of his death. The order of birth, 
however, of his five sons, and three daughters, is not definitely known. 

The children of John McClymonds, of Butler County, Pennsyl- 
vania, were: 

John McClymonds, of whom subsequently. 

Thomas McClymonds. This was, it appears indisputable, the 
Thomas McClymonds, discussed above, who owned land in Armstrong 
County, and who had settled there as early as 1799. It is believed that 
Thomas McClymond sold his interest in the Armstrong land, described 
above, to one of his two associates in its ownership, Archibald McCall 
and Robert McKinley, this apparently indicated by a conveyance of 
the latter, September 20, 1821. It is probable that he had some years 
before that date removed to the adjoining Butler County, as had his 
father, John McClymonds, for, as has been shown, on October 28, 
181 7, the widow of John expressed her desire that Thomas McCly- 
monds should administer John McClymonds' estate. It has been said 
by an historian that Thomas McClymonds settled upon the western 
end of the tract whereon his father lived in Butler County, but later 
removed to Beaver County. This may be true, but he was called a 
resident of Butler County at the dates of the making and the proving 
of his will, January 3, 1851, and January 11, 1856. He was living in 
Franklin Township, Butler County, when he made his will, and, as 
has been shown, the home of his father, John McClymonds, in the 
present Brady Township, was originally in Muddy Creek Township. 
What was Muddy Creek Township, in 1804, when John McClymonds 
died, is now Worth, Muddy Creek, Franklin, and Brady Townships, 

[50] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

as stated. The present Brady Township was formed from Franklin 
and from smaller parts of Slippery Rock and Centre Townships, in 
1854. Thus the statement, above, that Thomas settled on a part of 
his father's land in Butler County, is probably correct. In his will, 
Thomas McClymonds bequeathed to his son, Thomas, all his land in 
Franklin Township (there located in 1851, the will's date, but doubt- 
less included in Brady, in 1854, when the latter was formed), this 
younger Thomas, who was born in 18 10, was living (probably on the 
same land) in Brady Township, in 1883. Thomas, Senior, mentioned 
in his will, besides his son, Thomas, his "eldest son John McCly- 
monds/' his "second son William McClymonds," his eldest daughter 
Janes heirs," his "four daughters Mary Hannah Anne and Margaret," 
and he appointed his son, William, to be the sole executor of his will. 
No wife is named, and he was probably a widower at the time of his 
death. 

James McClymonds, son of John McClymonds, of Butler County, 
was born in 1788. In 1814 he removed to Allegheny County, Penn- 
sylvania, where he lived until 1831, then returning to Butler County, 
where his home was in Muddy Creek Township. He died in the latter 
place between August 5, and October 11, 1852, the dates, respectively, 
of the signing and proving of his will. His wife was Jane, daughter 
of Isaac Cornelius, an early settler of Butler County. She was born 
in 1784, and died in 1850, two years before her husband. In his will, 
James McClymonds directed that the land on which he lived should be 
sold, and the proceeds divided among his children then living. He 
mentions his "Daughter Mary Cleland. . . .her daughter Marie Eliza- 
beth Cleland," his "Grand-Daughter Martha Jane, daughter of Isaac 
McClymonds deceased," and appointed his "two sons James and 
Samuel McClymonds Executors." 

Before continuing with the list of the children of John McCly- 
monds, first of the family in Butler County, it will be of interest to 
note the children and known descendants of the foregoing James 
McClymonds, son of the aforesaid John McClymonds. He and his 
wife had six sons and three daughters, as follows, but the order of 
their birth is unknown : 

Mary McClymonds, mentioned in her father's will as Mary Cle- 
land, who married David Cleland. She and her husband lived in 

[51] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, and she was living in 1883. 
As shown in her father's will, she had a daughter, Marie Elizabeth 
Cleland. 

Isaac McClymonds, mentioned in his father's will as deceased, 
who is said to have been thirty-four years old when he died. This 
would place the date of his birth about 1813, for he made his will on 
April 12, 1847, an d it was proved May 5, 1847. I* 1 ** ne mentioned 
his residence as Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, and referred 
to his "beloved wife Margaret," and to his "children. . . .Martha, Jane 
and James Calvin." These children were all under twenty-one at the 
time of his death, and he appointed his wife, Margaret, as their 
guardian. He named David Cleland and James McClymonds his 
executors. But in the Executors' Account the latter is called "James 
McClymonds, Jr." Therefore, Isaac did not appoint his father, James 
McClymonds, as his executor, but Isaac's own brother, James, Junior. 

James McClymonds (son of the above James and Jane Cornelius 
McClymonds and thus grandson of John McClymonds, first of Butler 
County), was born December 4, 18 16, in Allegheny County, while his 
father was residing there. He was thus about fifteen when his par- 
ents returned to Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, in 1831. 
He was living in 1883. The wife of James McClymonds was Lydia 
Vance, whom he married in 1843, and who also was living in 1883. 
She was the daughter of James Vance, an early settler of Beaver 
County, Pennsylvania, and the latter's second wife, Annah Harris. 
This James Vance was born in Ireland about 1777, and his wife, 
Annah Harris, was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, about 
1789. The first wife of James Vance was Martha Walker. James 
McClymonds and his wife, Lydia Vance, had the following children, 
all living in 1883: 

Maria J. McClymonds, married — Glenn. 

James Vance McClymonds. 

Isaac Milton McClymonds, in 1883 a Professor in the Model 
School, Edinburgh, Erie County, Pennsylvania. He was born about 
1846 in Portersville, Butler County, and was living in 1918 at Slip- 
pery Rock, Butler County. His wife (living in 1918) was Matilda 
G. . 

John W. McClymonds, Principal of a school at San Leandro, 
California, in 1883.

Resuming the list of the children of James and Jane Cornelius 
McClymonds (said James being the son of the first John McClymonds 
of Butler County), the next known was John McClymonds, living in 
Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, in 1883. 

Elizabeth McClymonds (daughter of James, and granddaughter 
of the first John of Butler County), married Thomas Boyd, and died, 
a widow, in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, in 1882. 

Joseph McClymonds (son of James, and grandson of the first 
John of Butler County), was born about 1820, and died in 1833. 

Sarah McClymonds (daughter of James, and granddaughter of 
the first John of Butler County), married John Newell Glenn of 
Worth Township, Butler County, and died in 1854. 

Samuel McClymonds (son of James, and grandson of the first 
John of Butler County), was, in 1883, Clerk in the County Commis- 
sioners' Office, at Butler, Pennsylvania. 

William Wilson McClymonds (son of James, and grandson of 
the first John of Butler County), was born about 1826, lived and died 
in Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, his death taking place in 
1896. He married Eleanor, daughter of John Weller of Lawrence 
County, Pennsylvania, and they had the following children: 



McClymonds, died in infancy. 



Calvin McClymonds, married Martha Hamilton. 
Jennie McClymonds, married J. C. Ricketts. 
Elizabeth McClymonds, married L. J. Levis. 

John Weller McClymonds, born near Portersville, Muddy Creek 
Township, Butler County, January 18, i860; was for some years a 
teacher and also engaged in farming; removed in 1900 to Rose Point, 

[53] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, where he became a merchant, and 
was, in 1908, the Post Master. He married Elizabeth, daughter of 
Peter Wallace of Muddy Creek Township, Butler County, and had the 
following children: William, not living in 1908; Henry; Audley; 
Nellie; Paul, not living in 1908; and Jarvis, not living in 1908. 

There have now been described or listed three of the eight chil- 
dren of John McClymonds, the first of Butler County; John (whose 
biography will appear subsequently); Thomas; and James; with an 
account of the descendants, as known, of Thomas and James. Resum- 
ing the list of the children of the first John McClymonds, the fol- 
lowing appear: 

William McClymonds, of whom nothing is known. On October 
24, 1848, an inventory of the estate of William McClymonds of Muddy 
Creek Township, Butler County, was taken by Stephen Clark and 
Andrew Glenn. The identity of this man is unknown, but it seems 
probable that he was the son of William (son of the first John of 
Butler County). For, on November 29, 1848, Sarah Hill McClymonds 
certified that she desired John Glenn of Muddy Creek Township to 
administer the estate of "William McClymonds Jr. deceased my 
husband." The fact that he was William McClymonds, Junior, at 
this date, seems to preclude the possibility of identifying the William 
of the inventory with William, son of John, the first of Butler County. 
For the other Williams of this date in Butler County can be eliminated 
from identification with the William of the inventory, as follows. 
William, son of Thomas (son of the first John of Butler County), was 
living in 1851, when, as stated above, he was named as executor of his 
father's will. William, son of James (son of the first John of Butler 
County), lived until 1896, as shown above. Neither of these two last- 
mentioned Williams were as old as their uncle, William, son of the 
first John, and thus the said uncle (William, son of the first John), 
could not have been called "Junior" in 1848. In absence of positive 
identification, therefore, the William of the inventory and husband of 
Sarah Hill McClymonds, must be tentatively placed as the son of 
William (son of John McClymonds, first of Butler County). 

Jonathan McClymonds is named as a son of John, the first of 
Butler County. No records have been found of him, and it may be 
that he died young.

Elizabeth McClymonds, who married Moore, was a daugh- 
ter of John McClymonds, first of Butler County. 

Agnes McClymonds, daughter of the said John, married 

Mcjunkin. 

Anne McClymonds, also daughter of the said John, married 
Cornelius. 



Returning to John McClymonds, son of John McClymonds (the 
first of Butler County), his biography follows. He was born on 
June 3, 1778. It is traditional that the place of his birth was Lan- 
caster County, Pennsylvania. Careful research in the present Lan- 
caster County has not disclosed any evidence of this, nor has the tradi- 
tion been verified by researches made in Chester County (from which 
Lancaster County was formed in 1729), and in Cumberland County, 
which was formed from Lancaster County in 1750. Bedford County, 
in whose records all references to the earlier John McClymonds (and 
others of the surname) have been collected and described above, was 
erected from Cumberland County in 1771. If John McClymonds of 
the present biography was, as seems possible, born in Bedford County, 
Pennsylvania, the place of his birth would have been, prior to 1750, 
included in Lancaster County. It is possible, of course, that the 
mother of John McClymonds of the present biography was of a Lan- 
caster County family, and that, thus, he might have been born in 
the present limits of the County. 

He evidently left his father's home in Butler County when quite 
a young man, for he was living, as will be seen, in what is now Darl- 
ington, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, in 1806, while he was, before 
that date, a resident of Beaver County, living at the town of Beaver 
for two years. It is said that, with companions, he visited a site, near 
the present town of Sharon, which is in Mercer County, and saw there 
men making boats for Aaron Burr, who planned to use them in his 
conspiracy. 

On September 13, 1806, Alexander Hannah and his wife, Mar- 
garet Hannah, of the town of Greersburg (the first name of Darl- 
ington, to which reference will be made), Beaver County, sold to John 
McClymonds of the same place Lot Number 115 of the said town. 
He paid for this property the sum of twenty-seven dollars and fifty 
cents. The lot was bounded as follows: "Beginning at a corner on 

[59] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Market street and Fifth street and extending along Fifth street one 
hundred and thirty-two feet to a corner on Potters alley, thence along 
said alley seventy feet to lot one hundred and sixteen, thence along 
said lot one hundred and thirty-two feet to a corner on Market street, 
thence along Market street seventy feet to the place of beginning 
being part of a tract of land granted by the commonwealth of Penn- 
sylvania, to Thomas Sprott by patent bearing date the twenty eight 
day of December one thousand eight hundred and two and recorded 
in the rolls office in patent book forty eight, page one hundred and 
ninety four and conveyed by him to Alexander Hannah by indenture 
bearing date the nineteenth day of August one thousand eight hundred 
and six and by Alexander Hannah to Sd. John McClymonds." The 
deed was recorded on September 17. 1806. 

Some account of Beaver County and of Greer sburg (now Darl- 
ington) will be of interest, and here follows: 

Beaver County was erected March 12, 1800, from Washington 
and Allegheny Counties. Above have been given the outlines of those 
Counties' descent, both tracing back to Westmoreland County, and 
thence back, through Bedford, Cumberland, and Lancaster, to Chester, 
one of the three original Counties of Pennsylvania. In 1771, on 
April 16, at which date the territory now Beaver County was a part 
of the newly erected Bedford County, the latter County was divided 
into Townships. The lands south of the Ohio River and west of the 
Monongahela were gathered into Pitt Township, on the north, and 
Spring Hill Township, on the south. Pitt Township then included 
part of the present Beaver County. When, in 1773, Westmoreland 
was set off from Bedford, the new County took in the two aforesaid 
Townships, Pitt and Spring Hill, and kept their names as well. At 
this period, therefore, Pitt Township, Westmoreland County, included 
the southern part of Beaver County. Westmoreland County, how- 
ever, as appears from early deeds, included some territory north of 
the Ohio River. Washington County was formed in 1781 from West- 
moreland, and Allegheny County in 1788 from Washington and 
Westmoreland. When Beaver was organized as a County, in 1800, 
most of its territory had been formerly in Allegheny County, but a 
small part had been, as stated, a part of Washington. 

In Beaver County's beginning, in 1800, it had six Townships: 

[60] 



MCCLYMONDS ANCESTRY AND CLAN LAMONT 

Hanover, First Moon, and Second Moon, these on the south side of 
the Ohio River ; North Beaver, South Beaver, and Sewickley, these on 
the north side of the Ohio. The first Court of Quarter Sessions of 
the Peace and Jail Delivery met in Beaver (the town), February 6, 
1804, and it appointed Constables for Beaver Borough and for the 
following Townships, some of which had been formed between 1800 
and 1804 from the aforesaid original Townships: First Moon, Second 
Moon, Hanover, South Beaver, Little Beaver, Big Beaver, North 
Beaver, North Sewickley, New Sewickley. These divisions and new 
formations of Townships had been made by Allegheny County Court. 
What is now Darlington Township, Beaver County, was formerly in 
Little Beaver Township. A part of the latter was made into a new 
Township, named Darlington, on October 15, 1847. 

As has been mentioned, the original name of the town of Darl- 
ington was Greersburg, so called in honor of George Greer, who, 
with Thomas Sprott and William Martin, owned the land on which it 
was laid out, May 13, 1804. It is located in the northwestern part of 
Darlington Township (formed, as above described, from Little 
Beaver), on Little Beaver Creek. In the latter part of the year 1795 
a few settlers came here, most of them, it is said, from Westmoreland 
County. It was incorporated on March 28, 1820. On April 6, 1830, 
its name was changed to Darlington, because of the confusion that had 
sometimes arisen between the similarity of the names of Greersburg 
and Greensburg, in the same State of Pennsylvania. 

John McClymonds was engaged in business in Darlington as a 
tailor, and the esteem in which he was held by his fellow-citizens is 
indicated by the fact that he was twice appointed Post Master, in 
1840 and in 1849. He died in Darlington, March 10, 1870, aged 
ninety-two years, and was buried at Newcastle, Lawrence County, 
Pennsylvania, where his son, William (of whom subsequently), had 
a burying-place or cemetery. 

John McClymonds served in the War of 181 2, and the musket 
which he carried was handed down to his son, James McClymonds, 
(of whom subsequently), and is now in the possession of a grand- 
nephew of John McClymonds of Beaver County, James McClymonds 
McGeorge, who served, during the World War, in the Aviation Service 
of the United States. Search has been made in the records of the

Office of the Adjutant General of Pennsylvania for further informa- 
tion as to the service of John McClymonds in the War of 1812, but 
nothing has been found there. The Custodian of the Public Records, 
Pennsylvania State Library, has the name of "John McClymons" on 
the Muster Rolls of the War of 18 12 as a Surgeon's Mate. This rec- 
ord appears in the Pennsylvania Archives, but with no further data 
concerning this officer, his home, or his antecedents. It has been 
believed among the descendants of John McClymonds of Beaver 
County that he held the rank of Captain. But the only official rec- 
ord which appears to refer to John McClymonds of Beaver County is 
that of "John McClymons," the Surgeon's Mate. 

John McClymonds made his will, which bears no date, as "John 
McClymonds of the county of Beaver and State of Pennsylvania/' 
This document follows: 

"Considering the uncertainty of this mortal life and being of 
sound mind and memory for which blessing I would thank Almighty 
God, I do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner

any such there be by my Executor herein after named be paid out of 
my Estate — Second I do give and bequeath to my three Sons John 
McClymonds William McClymonds and James McClymonds the sum 
of one dollar each. 

Third I do give and bequeath to my three daughters Mary Hen-

each and Fourth in consideration of the assiduous care and labor and 
attention which has been bestowed by my daughter Nancy during a 
long series [?; the transcriber] of years not only upon myself but 
also upon my beloved consort her Mother now deceased I do give and 
bequeath to my daughter Nancy McClymonds all and singular the 
residue and remainder of my estate both real and also all moneys on

The wife of John McClymonds of Beaver County was Jane Dun- 
lap, an account of some of whose ancestral lines will appear in the 
following issue of The Journal of American Genealogy. 

The children of John and Jane (Dunlap) McClymonds of 
Beaver County, Pennsylvania, were: 

John McClymonds, of whom subsequently. 

Mary McClymonds ; called "Polly" in family records, but "Mary" 

in her father's will; born November 26, 1809; married 

Henderson. 

Elizabeth McClymonds; born March 5, 181 1; married — 

Mcllroy. 

Nancy McClymonds; born November 17, 18 13. 

William McClymonds; born October 14, 181 5. 

James McClymonds; born April 3, 1820. 

Jane McClymonds; born February, 1823; married 

Armstrong. 

Matilda McClymonds; born, according to family records, on 
May 24, the year unknown, and who may have died before her father 
made his will (which was undated, but proved in 1870), as she was 
not mentioned therein. 

John McClymonds, son of John and Jane (Dunlap) McClymonds, 
was born April 29, 1808, in Greer sburg, now named Darlington, 
Beaver County, Pennsylvania. Following the tradition of so many 
Americans whose achievements have been built, as were his, on sim- 

[63] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

plicity of home life in youth, desire for mental progress, and con- 
sciousness of the essential values of education, he became a teacher. 
His school was probably at Unity, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, 
where President Andrew Jackson appointed him Post-Master. About 
1842, he went to Lisbon (formerly called New Lisbon), Columbiana 
County, Ohio, and there was connected with a branch of the State 
Bank. While there, he edited a "Whig" newspaper, and through it 
gave ardent support to the aspirations of Henry Clay in the political 
battles of the period. 

About i860, Mr. McClymonds settled in Massillon, Stark County, 
Ohio, where he was prominent in the organization of the Union Na- 
tional Bank. He removed to Cleveland in 1869, and, with Robert 
Hanna, founded the State National Bank, first called the Ohio 
National Bank, of which he became Cashier, Mr. Hanna being Presi- 
dent. On the latter's death, Mr. McClymonds was made President, 
and held that office until 1887, when he withdrew from active business 
affairs. He was also associated, as an organizer and a director, with 
the Cleveland Rubber Company and the Mechanical Rubber Company, 
into which the former business was merged. 

On March 29, 1842, about the time, as stated, when John McCly- 
monds settled in New Lisbon, Ohio, he bought, from Andrew J. 
Baughman and the latter's wife, Ellen P. Baughman, a lot in Darl- 
ington, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, and, on the same day, he, 
joined in the transfer by his wife, Elizabeth, conveyed this property, 
for the nominal payment of five dollars, "and for the further consider- 
ation of Filial love," to his parents, "John McClymonds Senior, and 
Jane McClymonds wife of the said John Snr both of the County of 
Beaver and State of Pennsylvania." 

John McClymonds was a member of the Methodist Church, and 
took an active part in the affairs of that denomination. He held very 
strong opinions on the subject of temperance, and has been described 
as a strong, intense-natured man, of the type, mentally and physically, 
associated with the serious and virile Scotch-Irish pioneers of the 
Colonial period. He died at his home in Cleveland, Ohio, March 
15, 1894. 

His wife was Elizabeth Kincaid, who died in 1881. Their chil- 
dren were: 

Edward McClymonds.

LIDA WILKINS MERRILL 

T HAS OCCURRED to the writer that even scant 
data of family history, published in the proper chan- 
nels, may by comparison, with data held by other 
branches of the family, serve to establish missing links, 
lost by time or obscurity. History tells us there have 
been distinguished members of the Wilkins family, 
holding offices in church and state and serving their country with 
honor. 

The Gouverneur Morris Wilkins family, of New York, the 
Pennsylvania Wilkins and the writer's family belong to the same 
Welsh stock. The first ancestor of the Wilkins family in Wales was 
of Breconshire, and came with Robert Fitzhamon to the conquest of 
Glamorgan in 1091 ; but after the tempest of battle, perhaps vexed 
by the tyranny of war, or, maybe attracted by some miracle of beauty 
in mountain and mere, he remained, and, amid the infinite variety of 
picturesque scenery, built or took possession of Brecknock castle, where 
the last representative in Wales, whom the writer has any knowledge 
of was Sir William Wilkins, who lived in the same old Brecknock 
castle. One branch of the family took the name de Winton, by Roya4 
License, July 6, 1839. This fact, not generally known, may create 
some confusion in genealogical research ; but their coat-of-arms, in the 
college of Heraldry, corresponds with the arms of the parent stock. 
The great-great-great-grandfather of the writer was Robert 



[71] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Wilkins, of Wales, who was an early settler in this country when it 
was little more than a wilderness. The place where he settled was 
where Philadelphia now stands. The autobiography of his grandson 
tells in an interesting way of his buying a large tract of land, settling 
on it, and then selling it for a beaver hat; taking up another tract, 
settling and improving it, then giving it to one of his sons ; taking up 
other tracts, and giving them to other sons, and finally going to Vir- 
ginia where he died at the home of another son. 

Tradition says, he was accompanied by two brothers, and it is 
certain, according to the Virginia Historical Magazine, that one John 
Wilkins, gentleman, brought to Virginia, twenty-five white servants, 
and one negro. He settled first in Accomac county, which afterwards 
was divided into Northampton, Lower Norfolk, and Isle of Wight. 
He owned 1,300 acres of land in Upper Norfolk, in 1637, and in 1641 
was Burgess from Accomac. 

Another John, of later date, who was a son of Robert, took an 
active part in the boundary difficulties against Maryland which state 
offered £50 for his arrest. He married, about 1731, Rachel McFar- 
land, daughter of Robert and Janet McFarland and died about 1741. 

His son, John, born June 1, 1733, died December 11, 1809. At 
the outbreak of the Revolution he raised a company and in 1776 was 
commissioned Captain in the Continental service. 

General John, his son, was also an officer in the Revolution. 
Judge William Wilkins, another son, was United States Senator, Min- 
ister to Russia and Secretary of War in 1844-5. 

The Wilkins family in New York, began with Martin Wilkins, of 
Wales. Issue: Dr. Isaac Wilkins, Rector of St. Peter's Church, for 
thirty years, at Westchester. Issue: Martin L. Wilkins, a lawyer, of 
New York City. Issue : Lewis Morris Wilkins, father of Gouverneur 
Morris Wilkins, whose mother was Sarah DeLancey, kinswoman of 
Bishop DeLancey. Gouverneur Morris Wilkins was also a rector in 
the Episcopal church, and one of his ancestors married Isabella Morris, 
a sister of Gouverneur Morris. 

The writer's ancestry is as follows: Robert Wilkins, of Wales, 
the first ancestor in this country. His son, my great-great-grand- 
father, was an Indian trader, and while living in Baltimore had his 
post of trade near Cumberland, Maryland. His given name is 

[72] 



WILKINS FAMILY OF WALES AND AMERICA 

unknown. He died leaving a large estate. John Wilkins, second son 
of the preceding, the writer's great-grandfather, married near Har- 
risburg. He was a minor at the time of his father's death, his older 
brother being administrator of the estate. When he became of age 
he applied for his portion, but failed to get it. He settled in Virginia, 
near Winchester, or Romney. 

After his death, his son, David, the writer's grandfather, left 
Virginia, where he was born and brought up, and with his younger 
brother, Andrew, and two sisters, emigrated to Indiana territory, in 
1798, proceeding by the Ohio river to the mouth of the Wabash and 
from thence to "Old Post" Vincennes. Andrew, the second son of 
David, was my father. He was born at Fort Knox, near Vincennes, 
moved to Terre Haute, Indiana, in 1846. He held many offices there, 
being sheriff for two years, clerk of the county eight years, and judge 
of the Common Pleas, with other non-political offices of trust. 

Another John, who may be identical with one of the Johns already 
given, is referred to in "Documents Relating to the Colonial History 
of New York." During the French and Indian War, he was in 
command, as Major of six hundred regulars, sent to the relief of 
Detroit. Although styled Lieutenant-Colonial, John Wilkins was 
appointed captain in the Fifty-fifth Regiment of Foot, 1755, and 
became a Major, unattached, in 1762. He was Commandant at 
Niagara in 1763; was Major of the Sixtieth Regiment in 1764; Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel of the Eighteenth Royal Irish in 1768; finally going to 
Fort Pitt. He was Commandant of Fort Chartres, where he was in

The Wilkins Coat-of-Arms is authentic. The following descrip- 
tion was sent to the writer from London by Sir Walter Wilkins, who 
was Lord Mayor of the city at the time : 

Arms of Wilkins: Per pale, or and argent, a wivern vert. 

Crest : A wivern's head vert.

Y great-great-grandfather, Thomas Bourdoux, resided 
in France, by birth a Frenchman of wealth, education 
and standing in his country. About the year 1685, 
after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, the perse- 
cutions of the Protestants again commenced in the part 
of France where he resided — a widower at this time, 
with an only child, a daughter, aged ten years. Persuaded that his 
own life was in danger, he steadfastly determined not to turn an 
apostate to his God, and barter his religion for his life. 

Anxious to save his child, tender alike in years and sex, from the 
persecutions and cruelties practiced on all of every degree, childhood 
not being exempt, he determined to put her on board a vessel then in 
pert, not knowing even its destination, and engaged a female servant, 
who had resided for some years as a domestic in his family and was 
much attached to his child. She was a Protestant and freely consented. 
The only provision for them he could make with safety was to have as 
much gold quilted into his child's petticoat as it could contain without 
discovery, as also in leather belts about their persons. It was all he 
could give his child on so short a notice, as his estates would be confis- 
cated. The vessel on which he placed them was bound to the Island 
of St. Thomas in the West Indies. We must draw a veil over the 
solemn parting of father and child. The father remained and shortly 
afterward suffered martyrdom, being torn asunder by four wild 
horses. 

On board the same vessel was a young gentleman f ro'm the same

were placed under similar circumstances, he at the age of 15 or 19 
years. His only wealth was secured about his person. He was accom- 
panied by a trusty and favorite male servant, who had resided with his 
father many years. On their arrival at St. Thomas my great-grand- 
mother and her humble servant boarded in a respectable family until 
she attained the age of fifteen, when she married Mr. Pierre LaSalle. 

Sometime before the marriage of the young couple their humble 
friends and guardians entered into the holy state of matrimony. Not 
long after their marriage, their funds running low, the proposition 
was made by their servants to build large ovens, as they both under- 
stood how to make French bread and could by that means support their 
superiors and themselves until better times. This being the first 
French bread sold upon the Isle, then a small and compact town, it met 
a ready sale. 

My ancestors purchased the ground upon which the ovens stood, 
and a few colored people to assist in the business. My great-grand- 
father, though young when he left France, had been well educated, 
and the blessing of God going hand in hand with their exertions, he 
soon received a lucrative appointment in the Danish Government and 
shortly obtained affluence. 

They had only one child, a daughter, who married a gentleman 
from Europe, John or Johannis Malleville, and they had one son named 
Thomas and three daughters. My mother, the eldest of the daughters, 
losing her mother in childhood, resided with her father and grand- 
mother, who died at the advanced age of ninety-five years. Thomas, 
the only son, was sent to Denmark to be educated. After his tour 
through Europe, being about the Court of Copenhagen, he received 
the commission of Captain of the Kings life guard and married a maid 
of honor to Queen Matilda, who was sister of George Third of 
England and consort of Frederick of Denmark, father of the reigning 
Frederick. 

In connection with Captain Malleville's residence in the King's 
household I could narrate many interesting facts, but as they can be 
found in history I will not add to an already lengthy tale, but only 
remark, by way of guide to the curious reader, that Captain Malleville 
was the person to whom was consigned the truly distressing and 

[75]

melancholy office of arresting Queen Matilda, while in the sanctum of 
her bedchamber, on the night of the 1 7-1 8th of January, 1772, an 
office repugnant to all the finer feelings of his heart. From her 
sweet and affable manner he believed her to be perfectly innocent of 
the charge alleged against her, of intimacy with Struensee, physician 
to the King. It was also Captain Malleville's office to arrest Struensee 
and a man named Brant, for lifting his hand to the King. They were 
both beheaded, the latter having his hand first severed from his arm. 

Forgive me, my children, this digression, blending histories of 
royalty with my own. Believe me, when I say it does not proceed 
from vanity. I will no longer dwell on anything foreign to the purpose 
for which I took my pen in hand, namely, to show forth the glory of 
God and his wonder-working hand in leading, guiding and protecting 
a feeble Huguenot, at the almost infantile age of ten years thrown by 
a dying father on a cold and pitiless world without one natural friend 
and protector, but fully believing and trusting the promises of that 
gracious God who has said, "Leave your fatherless children to me, I 
will be their Father and their God." How fully has that blessed 
promise been verified to his descendants! But I will conclude my 
simple narrative of facts, and leave it to posterity to give glory where 
alone it is due. 

Shortly after the loss of his wife (Phoebe told me she eloped with 
a nobleman and that her picture was hung with its face to the wall) 
Captain Malleville, by permission of the King, returned with his sisters 
to his native place, with the commission of Governor General of the 
Danish West India Islands, which he retained for twenty- five years, 
during the remainder of his life. His oldest sister, my mother, lost 
her aged relative and second mother at the advanced age of seventy- 
five years, my mother being then thirteen years old. 

When fifteen she married Christian Suhm, then Governor Gen- 
eral of the Danish Islands. Captain Malleville received his commis- 
sion about fifteen years after the death of Governor Suhm, which took 
place on the return of the latter to the West Indies. Since that period 
there has not been wanting one of that aged Huguenot's nearest 
descendants to hold the helm of government in the place where they 
were born, with the exception of one interval, but the office returned 
five years after to the family, in which it has continued ever since.

BOURDOUX ANCESTRY OF THE BOUDINOTS 

I will only make one observation and conclude. The pile of 
stones, of which the ovens were composed, were only removed eight 
years since, when the land on which they stood was sold out of our 
family, it having been kept, like the pillars of stone by the children of 
Israel, from generation to generation, as a monument of God's good- 
ness — their and His wonder-working hands. For the sake of clear- 
ness and completeness in our Genealogical list, we now go back to the 
beginning. 

I. Thomas Bourdeau or Bourdoux, a Protestant of wealth, edu- 
cation and standing — Martyr. 

II. Maria, his daughter, married in 1690, at the age of fifteen, 
to Pierre LaSalle. She died in 1750, aged 75. 

III. Marca, their only child, born in 1706, sixteen years after 
their marriage, who married Jvannis (de) Malleville, a French gentle- 
man of Huguenot descent. She died in 1738, at the age of 32. She 
had four children, Thomas, Maria (my great-grandmother), Anna 
and Elizabeth. 

IV. Maria, born in 1736. After her mother's early death she 
lived with her father and grandmother until she married, at the age of 
fifteen, Christian Suhm, Governor General of the Danish West Indies 
Islands. She was his second wife. He belonged to a distinguished 
family in Copenhagen. His younger brother was the learned Judge 
Auker Suhm. They had six children. 

Mrs. Suhm married secondly, General Van Beverhaupt. In the 
late seventies the family emigrated to the United States. Mr. Abra- 
ham Lott, of New York City, negotiated for the General the purchase 
of a beautiful estate of three thousand acres in the town of Passip- 
pany, New Jersey. From the old letters it seems that this was effected 
by the sale of a valuable old estate in St. Croix, called Santa Marrei, 
valued at 33,000 pounds sterling, a property inherited by Mrs. Von 
Beverhaupt from her first husband, Christian Suhm. Her consent to 
the exchange was reluctantly given. The family did not come to New 
Jersey and take possession until the second year of the Revolutionary 
War. They first sailed with two hundred negroes, but were ship- 
wrecked, and returned to St. Thomas. A second attempt was more 
successful, and there arrived safely in New York, General and Mrs. 
Van Beverhaupt and their two daughters, Anna Maria and Adrianna. 

[77] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

The new home in "the Jerseys" was called "Beverwyck," from 
the General's old home in Holland. The Beverwick Farm was a 
famous place in its day. The Newark Daily Advertiser has an article 
describing it on December 4, 1849. On the lawn in front still stands a 
time-battered oak, under which, according to the diary of General Von 
Beverhaupt, General Washington and his staff dined on Sunday, over 
one hundred years ago. 

General Van Beverhaupt died suddenly, November 26, 1796. He 
was returning home from Newark in his "chair," when he was seized 
with a fit, and after being brought home, died the same night. A 
copy of his will is preserved. He left almost everything to his daugh- 
ter, Adrianna, and to his wife in trust for her ; to Maria, only one-fifth 
of an inconsiderable portion of his estate. 

Mrs. Van Beverhaupt died at the age of sixty-two, in June or 
July, 1798, two years after her husband. The homestead comprised 
six hundred and seventy-one acres. Mrs. Adrianna Boudinot and her 
heirs retained it until within a score of years, when it was sold to a 
Mr. Condict. 

Adrianna married Tobias Boudinot, nephew of Elias Boudinot. 
Her children, who survived infancy, were : 

1. Beverhaupt, who married and settled in the West. 

2. Susan Bradford, who married Colonel Amos Avery Brewster 
of Hanover, New Hampshire, a direct descendant of Elder W r illiam 
Brewster.

X DOMESDAY Book, under date of 1198, Karie of 
Torr Abbey is a tenant-in-chief. The name also 
appears in ancient records as Kari and Karry. An 
Adam de Karry, or Kari, 11 70, was lord of Castle 
Karry in Somerset, and the Carys of Devonshire are 
regarded as of the same branch. In 1270 the name 
appears as de Karry; by the next century- the "de" has disappeared 
and Carey or Cary becomes the correct orthography. For the last 
hundred years, Cary has been the most common form. 

Carew is considered by some authorities as one and the same name 
as Carey, and the story is told of two Walter Carews, members, at the 
same time, of the House of Commons, that it was proposed one should 
be called Carey, to present embarrassing situations, and to end the 
confusion between 

"What Care I 

and 

What Care You." 

The history of one branch of the Cary family, in America, begins 
with Colonel Wilson Myles Cary, son of John, and grandson of 
William Cary, lord mayor of Bristol, 161 1. Myles received a grant of 
3,000 acres in Westmoreland, Ya., 1654. "Colonel" was the title he 
brought with him, and "Major" the one that he earned here. His 
tombstone at Cary's quarters, in Warwick, bears the coat-of-arms 
herewith illustrated. His wife was Alice, daughter of Henry Hoi 
alderman of Bristol, and they had four sons and three daughters. One 
son, Colonel Myles, or Miles, married Mary, daughter of Colonel 
Wm. Will son, of Hampton. 

[81] 




[82] 



CARY FAMILY 

Miles, the immigrant, who came over perhaps as early as 1640, 
certainly by 1650, was member of the king's council, under Berkeley. 
This line claims as ancestor Sir William Cary, who fell at Tewksbury, 
1 47 1. His son, Sir Thomas, married a granddaughter of the Duke 
of Somerset; their son, Sir William Cary, married Mary, sister of 
Anne Boleyn, queen. Henry Cary, their son, was Lord Hunsdon, the 
"honest courtier" of Elizabeth's reign. 

The Carys formerly held two earldoms — Monmouth and Dover — 
and the barony of Hunsdon, and Henry Carey, born 1622, was the first 
Viscount Falkland. 

In New England, John Cary's name is found in Plymouth records, 
1634, the year of his arrival. He helped found Duxbury and Bridge- 
water, and in 1656 he was constable of the last named place, the first 
and only officer of the town that year. From 1657 till his death, 1681, 
he was town clerk. According to tradition, he was the first teacher of 
Latin in the Plymouth Colony. 

His sons and grandsons, like himself, were founders of towns in 
New England ; they were also pioneers in Pennsylvania. The society 
of "The John Carey Descendants" keeps green the family name by 
annual reunions and two years ago erected a handsome marker at West 
Bridgewater, on the site of John the pilgrim's home. John's wife was 
Elizabeth Godfrey, and their children numbered twelve. One daugh- 
ter, Mehitable, married, for her second husband, Miles Standish, of 
the Mayflozver Standish line, and the lineage is a pretty good one all 
around. 

Kinship is claimed with the Grants, through the marriage, 1762, 
of Samuel Cary, descendant of John the first, to Deliverance Grant, 
of the family to which General Grant traced back. Virginia marriage 
connections include the Page, Carter, Lee and Fairfax families. The 
wife of the eighth Lord Fairfax was Elizabeth Cary, of the Myles 
Cary line. 

Since the first Carys of Plymouth and Virginia shouldered arms 
at their country's call, the family has been represented in every war. 
Officers of the American Revolution included Ensign Josiah and 
Lieutenant Jonathan of Massachusetts ; Lieutenant Samuel and Quar- 
termaster Obed of Virginia. One of the Virginia family was on 
Washington's staff. 

Lieutenant Jonathan is, perhaps, the "Capt." Jonathan buried at 

[83] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Copp's Hill, 1801, whose wife was Elizabeth Proctor. He was fourth 
in descent from James Cary, who was of the same family as Myles of 
Virginia. James was town clerk of Charlestown, Mass., about 1640. 
He married Eleanor Hawkins. 

Characteristics of the Carys are patriotic self-devotion and single- 
mindedness. What has been said of one, may also be said of many of 
the family, 

" , a friend to Truth ; of soul sincere, 

In action faithful, and in honor clear/' 

The family has more than its share of learned men. The best 
translation ever made of Dante is that of Henry Francis Cary, who is 
buried in Westminster Abbey by the side of Britain's most honored 
dead. Another Henry Cary was a poet and musician, and enjoys the 
distinction of having been the author of "God Save the King," written 
about 1740. 

The coat-of-arms illustrated is blazoned : Argent, on a bend, sable, 
three roses of the field, leaved vert. 

Crest: A swan, wings elevated, proper. 

Motto: Virtute excerptae — "Conspicuous for bravery," or "By 
valor gained." 

This is the coat-armor of the Virginia and Massachusetts Carys, 
although Myles, of Virginia, had a different motto; two mottoes 
indeed are blazoned with his coat-of-arms, viz., Comme je trouve, and 
Sine Deo carco. Hope and joy are symbolized by the roses, and learn- 
ing by the swan. 

The story of the three white roses of the Carys and the motto, 
iVrtute excerptae, is that they were bestowed upon Sir Robert Cary, 
by Henry V., 141 3, for valor displayed upon the battlefield. 

"Let each one who bears the Cary name, 

Remember whence his shield and motto came. 

All that the family have by valor gained, 

Must by the sons be valiantly maintained. 

Then take the shield ; go forward to the fight ; 

Guard well the roses ; may their silvery light 

Shine on brave deeds, performed for truth and right."

ROM Dickinson to de Caen looks a far cry. Yet there 
be those who say that the name Dickinson originated in 
just this way. One who lived at Caen, France, remov- 
ing to another part of the world, was said to be "of," or 
"from Caen," "de Caen," and this some one's son was 
"de Caen's son." To-day de Caen's son is "Mr. Dickin- 






son. 



Can anything be simpler ? Like many other problem, it's so easy 
when you know how ! 

"Know how what?" Perhaps some one asks — elegance of diction 
going by the board, for the time. " 'Know how' to evolve a surname." 
This tradition regarding its origin is authorized by those who ought 
to know. "Ought to know better," perhaps you say. 

Very well, then, if this is not a satisfactory theory, there are 
others, but it seems to be generally considered a fact that the family 
came originally from France ; that a Walter from Caen, called Walter 
de Caen, went over with the Conqueror, and to him William gave 
the manor of Kenson in Yorkshire. Thus Walter de Kenson. In 
1260, a John Dykonson of Yorkshire, a descendant of Walter, married 
Margaret Lambert. 

Names found in old records about this time are William Dyken- 
son, Hugh Dykensonne, Anthoyne Dickensonne. About the end of the 
fourteenth century the name was generally spelled Dickenson. In 
1430 the mayor of Hull, Thomas of this line, spelled it with an "i" — 
Dickinson. Kenson Mahon, Yorkshire, was owned by the family as 
late as 1475, when a Hugh Dickinson was lord of the manor. Another 
seat of the Dickinsons was Bradley Hall, Staffordshire. 

[85] 




Dicfittsott 



[86] 



DICK TN SON FAMILY 

The lord mayor of London, 1757, was named Diconson. A noted 
pastoral poet of the sixteenth century was John Dickenson. 

Something more, however, is left to be said regarding the origin 
of the name. The son of Diccon, may easily become Dickonson, and 
Diccon or Dicon is neckname for Dick, which in turn is of course the 
nickname for Richard. Dignon or Digon are other names evolved 
from Richard, from which Dickinson may come, more or less directly. 

Nathaniel is a pilgrim, who came over in 1630, in Winthrop's 
fleet. He was first at Salem, removing to Wethersf ield in 1635, where 
his sons, John, Joseph and Thomas, were born. His wife was Anna 
Gull. He is also said to have owned property, and to have lived at 
Hadley, and was assessor and town magistrate. Another immigrant 
was Obadiah, of Hartford. The pilgrims, who made homes in Penn- 
sylvania, Maryland and Virginia, were Walter, Henry and John, 
brothers possibly. They came from London, 1654, and spelled the 
name Dickenson. 

A treasured relic is an old Bible, in which one of the first names 
recorded is that of "Ann Dickinson, born May 15, 171 5." 

Those of the family who wish to become Sons or Daughters of the 
American Revolution, have, among others, these soldiers to look up 
and trace down, through generation after generation: Sergeant 
Joseph who was in the Lexington Alarm, and Captain Joel, both of 
Connecticut ; Lieutenant Sylvanus of New York ; Major-General Phile- 
mon and Captain Peter of New Jersey; Brigadier-General John of 
Pennsylvania; Captain Edmund, of Virginia, and Lieutenant Ben- 
jamin of South Carolina. With one exception, the name is spelled 
Dickinson in the Revolutionary records. The one exception is that of 
Lieutenant Benjamin Dickenson. 

John Dickinson, the "Pennsylvania Farmer," as he was called, 
was a delegate to the general Congress of 1765, and therefore an 
invaluable ancestor for those who desire membership with colonial 
societies. It is worth some time spent in research of old records, if 
perchance you can annex him as a relative in your direct line of 
descent. 

John drafted the resolutions adopted by this Congress. To him 
is due the phrase: "No taxation without representation." In 1768, 
he published his famous "Letters to the Inhabitants of the British 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Colonies, by a Penna. Farmer/' The arguments advanced regarding 
the revenue were unanswerable and the effect in America was to 
prepare the people for a firm maintenance of their rights. A member 
of the first Continental Congress, Dickinson's influence was felt in all 
its deliberations. He was brigadier-general in the war, and a member 
of the convention that framed the constitution of the United States. 
In 1783 he was governor of Pennsylvania, and Dickinson College — -the 
second one founded in the state— was thus named for him. 

John Dickenson's father Samuel was of the Maryland branch of 
the family, and he also had an estate in Delaware. John's wife was 
Mary, daughter of Isaac Norris, who was speaker of the Pennsylvania 
Assembly for fifteen years. John Dickinson's personal appearance 
must have been far from reassuring. John Adams has written of him : 
"He is a shadow ; tall, slender as a reed, pale as ashes ; at first sight, one 
would think he couldn't live a month, yet the springs of life are strong." 

It has been said, and truly, that the American people owe him a 
great debt of gratitude. He was wisely conservative, yet a friend of 
human rights, and he had the courage to set forth his views even at the 
expense of his own popularity. 

The arms illustrated are blazoned: Azure, a fesse, ermine, 
between two lions, passant, or. 

Crest : A demi-lion, per pale, erminois and azure. 

The will of Obadiah Dickinson, who was of the Yorkshire branch 
of the family, is sealed with this coat-of-arms, although now partly 
obliterated. The will, recorded at Hartford, bears date 1798. The 
date of the granting of this coat-of-arms is not given. 

The date of another coat-of-arms, said to have been borne by 
Nathaniel, the pilgrim, is November 14, 1625. It is: Vert, a cross 
between three hind's heads, erased, or. 

Crest: A stag's head, erased, or. 

Motto : Esse quam videri. This is also the coat-of-arms attrib- 
uted to the immigrant ancestors, Walter, Henry and John.

'OSEPH LOOMIS, a woolen draper of Braintree, Essex 
County, England, with five sons and three daughters, 
sought a home in the New World in 1638. They came 
over in the ship Susan and Ellen, and settled in Wind- 
sor, Conn., the following year. The record of his first 
years in the colony is preserved by the Historical 
Society of Connecticut. 

He died, 1658, aged about seventy years. His land at Windsor 
was upon what was called "the Island/' The place is still owned by 
descendants and is believed to be the oldest homstead now standing in 
the United States. Over one and one-half million dollars have been 
left by Joseph's lineal descendants, of the last few generations, to 
convert the estate into an educational institute for boys and girls. 

Edward Lomas, another pilgrom, settled in Ipswich, Mass., in 
1648. He was born in London about 1606. He had six children. His 
descendants, found in many States, vary the orthography of the name, 
although Lummis is the usual form. Some write themselves down 
Loomis, others, without much rhyme or reason, it would seem, are 
Lamos. The descendants of Joseph are mostly known as Loomis. He 
and his sons, doubtless thinking "variety the spice of life," used a num- 
ber of forms, ringing the changes on Looms, Loomes, Loomas, Lomis, 
Loomax, and Lomys. The will of Deacon John, son of Joseph, dated 
August 27, 1688, is signed Loomys. His is one of the oldest monu- 
ments in the Windsor Cemetery. He was a representative to the 
Legislature for many years. The names of Joseph's five sons are 
mentioned prominently in old records of both Windsor and Hartford, 
as "selectmen, jurors and troopers."

LOOM IS FAMILY 

Of Edward's four sons, one, also named Edward, settled in New 
Jersey. Lummus and Lomaks are specimens of the way they thought 
their names should be written upon occasions. 

True to their coat-armor, which symbolizes, among other things, 
military strength, we find the Loomis family have their war record. 

In Great Britain there was James Lumax, lieutenant-general. 
To the home of their adoption they proved loyal. Joseph, a descendant 
of Joseph the first, was in the Continental Army of the Revolution: 
also Benjamin of Windsor, whose wife was Chloe, daughter of 
Josiah Brown, a Revolutionary soldier; Jonathan, of Vermont, was a 
corporal, who played his part manfully, and Gustavus, of Vermont, 
was in the War of 1812. Nor must we forget Benaiah, a Revolution- 
ary soldier. 

Before the third decade of the nineteenth century ten of the name 
had been graduated from college. The law seems to have been a favor- 
ite profession. Arphaxed Loomis, born in Winchester, Conn., in 1798, 
was a judge, an able speaker and a writer. Dwight Loomis, also from 
the land of steady habits, was another judge. James was Mayor and 
(Connecticut State) Senator. Osbert was an artist of renown. Elias 
Loomis was the scientific man of the family. He was born in Connec- 
ticut in 181 1. A graduate and professor of Yale College, he wrote 
many valuable text books, and was the first American to see Halley's 
comet on its return in 1835. 

One of the poets of the family was Harvey Worthington Loomis, 
who wrote "The Flag Goes By." 

"Hats off! 

Along the street there comes 

A blart of bugles, a ruffle of drums, 

A flash of color beneath the sky, 
Hats off, 

The flag is passing by!" 

It is not easy to believe that a name of such modest proportions as 
Loomis, started out as Lumhalghes. That such is a fact has been 
proved to the satisfaction of many members of the Loomis family. 

They trace the name to Oliverus de Lumhalghes, who held lands 
in Lancaster County, England, in 1435. The name also appears as 
"del Lumhalghe," in records of the time of Henry VI. Radus del 

[91] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Lumhalghes was a landowner in Bury, Lancaster, about the middle of 
the fifteenth century. The supposition is that this name, which looks 
so ponderous, was pronounced in two syllables ; "h" is only an aspirate 
and the final "e" is silent. This gives a word Lumalg or Lumalgs. and 
it is the easiest thing in the world to pronounce this Loomis, is it not? 
Perhaps not at the first attempt, for there are other variants of the 
name in old records — Lomax, Lomas, Lommes, Lommas and Lomatz 
being examples. 

For the benefit of the skeptic, who rejects this theory of the 
origin of the name, another one is given which seems more plausible. 
Loma is a Spanish word meaning a little hill, the plural being lomas. 
The first of the Lomas family was one who lived in Spain, and on or 
near a loma. In support of this theory it may be said that the name 
variously spelled, is common in Spain, and also in Italy. Lomas was 
a Spanish poet of the sixteenth century. Lomazzo was an Italian 
painter of the same century. He took his name from the village of 
Lomazzo, near Lake Como. He was summoned to Florence by Cosmo 
de Medicis, who made him guardian of a gallery of 4,000 paintings. 
Lomazzi is another Italian form of the name. One of the governors 
of the province of Saragossa and Eduardo de la Lomas. The name in 
France is Lomas ; in Germany, Lommatsch. 

The advocates of the theory of a Spanish origin of the name 
say it can be traced to the year 1400, to one Loma, and that his 
descendants went to Italy and to England. The name has always been 
prominent in England. In the Manchester records of 1497 a Lawrens 
Lomatz is mentioned. The arms of Lawrent Lomax, of Eye, Suffolk 
County, are recorded in a Visitation which has a place in the British 
Museum. The pedigree of Joshua Lomax, who died in 1685, is found 
in Pedigrees of Hertfordshire. He was the owner of a manor. The 
family has its martyr, in the person of John Lomas, burned at Canter- 
bury for heresy, its members of Parliament, and its graduates of 
Oxford and Eton. 

Forms of the name have been favorites for geographical nomen- 
clature. For example, Lomiswyl, or Lomisville, is the name of a village 
in Switzerland ; in Saxony there is a town called Lomatsch ; in Africa 
we find Loma Hill ; in the Argentine Republic, Lomas, and Point Loma 
at San Diego, California.

This coat-armor was used by Joseph, the Windsor forefather, who 
spelled his name indifferently, Loomis or Lomas. 

Regarding the symbolism, palet, a diminutive of the pale, has the 
same meaning as pale, namely, military strength and fortitude, and 
was given to those who had impaled or otherwise defended cities, or 
who had supported the government of their sovereigns, "by stand- 
ing up uprightly for prince and country." Fleur-de-lis were often 
granted to those who had taken part in the French wars. The pelican 
signifies devoted and self-sacrificing charity. The pelican, feeding 
her young, adorned the altars of many Egyptian temples, and was 
represented as vulning or wounding herself with her beak, or "in her 
piety," that is, surrounded by her young, whom she was feeding. The 
pelican is the device of the inner Temple, London.

BOUT 1 7 19 began the emigration of Scotch-Irish colon- 
ists of the Presbyterian faith to Pennsylvania. Their 
entrance into the New World was usually made either 
at Philadelphia or at New Castle, and their earliest 
settlements have been described as comprising "these 
townships, Donegal, Paxtang, Derry and Hanover 
(near the Susquehanna), and Drumore, Colerain, Fallowfield and 
Sadsbury (along Octorora Creek, which marks the western line of 
Chester County after 1729, together with the Brandy wine farms a 
little north of Wilmington, the Neshaminy lands north of Philadel- 
phia, and Allen township, ten miles west of Easton, . . . . " 

["9] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

In 1729 John Mordah and his wife, Agnes, came to Donegal 
Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It is practically certain 
that he came from County Tyrone, in Ulster, Ireland, and probably 
from the parish of Derry-lousan. 

On August 21, 1734, he was administrator of the estate of 
"Arthur McCammis Late of Donegal," Thomas Rutherford, who, as 
will be shown, was his son-in-law, signing also the administration bond. 

John Mordah died between August 22, 1744, the date of making 
his will, and the date of its proving, January 9, 1745. His will follows : 

"In the Name of God Amen I John Mordah in the Township of 
Donegal and County of Lancaster observing my Self frail and Infirm 
in Body and Likely to Go the way of all flesh But Sound in Judgement 
and Memory Do ... . Declare this .... my Last Will & Testament In 
the first place I freely Resign and Give up my Soul to God Begging 
that he may Accept of the Dedication And .... my Body .... that it 
Be Decently Interred And Secondly I . . . . Bequeath to my well Beloved 
Wife Agnes the full half of all my Chattels & Movables .... Except 
only one Black Heipher that has a whit face which heipher I Leave & 
Bequeath to my Son Thomas Rutherford and also I . . . . appoint my 
Wife to Get a Competent Maintainence from off this My Plantation 
During her Life and at her Death what Goods are in her possession 
To be ... . Given unto my Son James whom I appoint to take principall 
Care .... of her Excepting .... from the Above mentioned half of my 
Chattels on yearling heipher and on Ew which .... I ... . Bequeath to 
my Son Hendry M'kinny Again again (Sic: the transcriber) I. . . . 
Bequeath the plantation together with the other half of my Chattels 
and Movables unto my Daughter Iliner and that there may be no 
Discord hereafter Between Son James and Iliner or hir husband if 
Ever She Marries about the line Between James's plantation and that

... .the 9th Day of January Ano Dom 1744/5 The Last Will & Testa- 
ment of John Murdah Deceased was proved .... And probate & Letters 

Testamentar were Granted unto James & Elinor Murdah 

By Samuel Blanston Dep Regr" 
As evidenced by his will, John Mordah's wife was named Agnes, 
but her maiden surname is unknown. Their children were : 

I James Mordah, co-executor of his father's will, therefore of 
age when that will was made, in 1744, and hence born before the 
family came to America, and doubtless in County Tyrone, Ireland. 

II Jean Mordah, not mentioned in her father's will, but the 
wife of the "Son Thomas Rutherford," to whom John Mordah be- 
queathed the "Black Heipher that has a whit face," and of whom 
subsequently. 

in A daughter, unnamed in her father's will, and the wife of 
"Hendry Mckinny," whom John Mordah, in his will, calls "Son." 

iv Elinor Mordah, co-executor, with her brother, James, of their 
father's will; unmarried in January, 1745, when that will was proved. 

Jean Mordah, daughter of John and Agnes Mordah, was prob- 
ably born in County Tyrone, Ulster, Ireland, and perhaps in the parish 
of Derry-lousan, for there was born Thomas Rutherford, whom she 
married, and whom she had known before, in 1728, she came with 
her parents to Pennsylvania. Indeed, they had perhaps been engaged 
to be married in Ireland, for it is said that Thomas Rutherford loved 
her there and followed her across the ocean after a year's separation. 
He came over in 1729, and settled also in Donegal Township, Lancas- 
ter County. 

She was born about 1712, as appears from the inscription on her 
gravestone in Paxtang Churchyard, as quoted below. 

In September, 1730, Jean Mordah and Thomas Rutherford were 
married. He received a Warrant of one hundred and fifty acres of 
land in Derry Township, now in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, on 
March 1, 1737, and, on March 1, 1746, he obtained a Warrant for 
another tract in the same Township, also for one hundred and fifty 
acres. There are recorded Warrants of land granted to Robert Mur- 
dock in the same Township of Derry, one on March 30, 1742, for one 



[121]

hundred acres, and one on April 18, 1751, for fifty acres. This Rob- 
ert Murdock may be the Robert Murdah who was a witness to the will 
of John Mordah, quoted above. His relation to the latter is unknown, 
and he may have been John Mordah's son, or perhaps his brother. 
The names Mordah, Murdah, Murdock, etc., seem to be used inter- 
changeably. 

About 1750 Thomas Rutherford and his wife removed to Pax- 
tang Township, in the present Dauphin County. There he died, 
April 18, 1777, aged sixty-nine. He was born June 24, 1707, and was 
baptized by the Reverend John McClave, in the parish of Derry-lousan, 
County Tyrone, Ulster, Ireland. 

Jean (Mordah) Rutherford died August 10, 1789. She and her 
husband were both buried in the old Paxtang Churchyard, and the 
inscriptions on their graves are as follows : 

"In Memory

In

Three days before his death, Thomas Rutherford made his will, 
which follows: 

"IN THE NAME OF GOD AMEN.

This will was proved June 10, 1777. 

From it the following children of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) 
Rutherford are recorded: 

1 John Rutherford ; a Captain in the Revolution ; married Mar- 
garet Park. 

11 James Rutherford; apparentlv unmarried in 1777, when his 
father made his will ; named second, but perhaps a younger child. 

in Samuel Rutherford; apparently unmarried in 1777, when his 
father made his will ; named third, but perhaps a younger child. 

iv "Nell" or Eleanor Rutherford; married and with children in 
1777, when her father made his will. 
k v Jean Rutherford. 

vi Agnes Rutherford, of whom subsequently. 
vii Mary Rutherford. 

viii Elizabeth Rutherford; married and with children in 1777, 
when her father made his will. 

In Thomas Rutherford's will he mentions his son-in-law, Andrew 
May (?) — "Andrew Mais my son-in-law childer." He also mentions 
"Thomas Mais Childer." The latter may have been the husband of 
one of Thomas' daughters, and since Thomas mentions children of 
his daughters "Nell" and Elizabeth these two were perhaps the wives 
of two men, possibly brothers, of the name of May. 

Agnes Rutherford, daughter of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) 
Rutherford, and named in her father's will, was born in Paxtang, 
September 14, 1740, and died about 1813. She married William 
Gray, born in Paxtang in 1738. 

[124]

It is probable that he settled in what is known as Buffalo Valley 
about 1 77 1, for in November of that year a tract of eleven hundred 
and fifty acres was bought by Walter Clarke, in trust for himself, 
Robert Fruit, William Gray, Robert Clarke, and William Clarke. This 
tract was divided into six portions, of which five were allotted to 
these five men, and the sixth sold to Ludwig Derr, July 31, 1773. 
William Gray resided on his portion for the remainder of his life. 
His property was near the present Lewisburg, Union County, Penn- 
sylvania, and in 1886 belonged to Major Paul Geddes. William Gray 
was a Captain in the Revolution, and also served on the Committee of 
Safety for Northumberland County, formed in 1776, his appointment 
thereto, as representing, with James McClenachan and Robert Fruit, 
White Deer Township, being made August 13, 1776. 

Captain Gray, as Deputy Surveyor, made a resurvey of Lewis- 
burg in the present Union County, near which place, as stated above, 
he resided. In 1789 he owned there a distillery. 

On August 31, 1 79 1, he was commissioned Justice of the Peace, 
and died in 1815. 

The children of Captain William and Agnes (Rutherford) Gray 
were : 

1 Jane Gray; born in 1770; married, first, William Wallace; sec- 
ond, in 1 810, Samuel Hutcheson. 

11 Susanna Gray; born in 1772; died in Columbia County about 
1810; married, first, William Hudson; second, Andrew Foster, 
in Mary Gray, of whom subsequently. 

iv Margaret Gray; born in 1776; died, March, 1856, at Hartle- 
ton, Union County; married John Hays. 

v Nancy Gray; born in 1778; died about 1849; married Hudson 
Williams. 

vi Sarah Gray; born in 1780; died unmarried, 
vii Eleanor Gray; born in 1782; died at Lewisburg; married 
John Robinson. 

Before continuing the record of descent to Jane (Dunlap) McCly- 
monds from Captain William and Agnes (Rutherford) Gray, account 
should be given of the earlier history of the Gray family. 

Captain William Gray was the son of Captain John Gray. The 

[1251 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

latter was born in County Antrim, Ulster, Ireland. According to one 
authority he was born in 1698, but the inscription in old Paxtang 
Churchyard, on his gravestone, states that he died in 1785, aged about 
seventy-eight years, which would fix his birth-date as about 1707. 
It is probable that 1698 is nearer to the correct date, as his wife, as 
will be seen, is said to have been born about 1700. 

John Gray came to America about 1730, locating in Chester 
County, Pennsylvania, and later becoming an early settler of Paxtang 
Township, Dauphin County, then a part of Lancaster County. Dur- 
ing the French and Indian War ( 175 5- 1764), he served, with the rank 
of Captain, in the Battalion of Colonel Elder, and later in that com- 
manded by Colonel Asher Clayton. 

The homestead farm of Captain John Gray, in Paxtang Town- 
ship, Dauphin County, was, after his death, divided into four portions, 
which severally passed to four of his five sons, the fifth of whom, 
Captain William Gray, as has been related above, removed to the vicin- 
ity of Lewisburg. These other sons were George, Joseph, John, and 
Robert. George died unmarried, and his tract passed out of the Gray 
family. In 1886, Joseph's land belonged to his grandson, Josiah Espy; 
John's land to his grandson, J. Newton Gray; Robert's land to his 
granddaughter, Mrs. Mary Jane Bigham. 

Captain John Gray died in February, 1785, and was buried in the 
Churchyard at Paxtang. His first wife, who was the ancestress of 
Jane Dunlap, was Susanna Armstrong. They were married in 1730, 
and she died in October, 1750. The inscription on her gravestone in 
Paxtang Churchyard states that she was aged fifty when she died, 
and hence her birth-date may be placed at the year 1700. 

As an ancestral lineage for Susanna Armstrong has been traced 
for several hundred years, an account of this will be given at the close 
of the present study of Jane Dunlap's various ancestral families, the 
length of the Armstrong history rendering it inconvenient for inter- 
polation here. 

The second wife of Captain John Gray was Hannah Stevenson, 
the widow of George Semple. She was born in 171 1, and died in 
1 78 1, her marriage to Captain Gray taking place in 1753. 

The children of Captain John and Susanna (Armstrong) Gray 
were:

in William Gray, born in 1738, of whom the history has been 
given above, as he was ancestor of Jane Dunlap. 

By the second marriage of Captain John Gray, to Hannah (Stev- 
enson) Semple, he had children as follows: 

iv John Gray; born in 1754; married, first, Mary Robinson; sec- 
ond, Mary Falls. 

v Robert Gray; born according to one authority, in 1756, accord- 
ing to another, in 1757, while his gravestone inscription would fix the 
year as 1758; was a soldier of the Revolution and with Washington's 
army at Valley Forge; married Mary Rutherford, daughter of Cap- 
tain John and Margaret (Parke) Rutherford, the said Captain John 
Rutherford being, as has been recorded above in the present study, 
the son of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) Rutherford, and hence a 
brother of Agnes Rutherford, who married Captain William Gray 
and was an ancestress of Jane Dunlap. 

vi Hannah Gray; born in 1758, as stated by the authority who 
places the birth of her brother, Robert, as mentioned, in the year 1756; 
married, December 4, 1777, George Dixon.

bers of the Gray family in old Paxtang Churchyard.

Resuming the lineage-record of Jane Dunlap, Mary Gray, as has 
above been stated, was the daughter of Captain William and Agnes 
(Rutherford) Gray. She was born in 1774, and died September 8, 
1837. She married John Dunlap. 

It was known to the descendants of Jane Dunlap, who became 
the wife of John McClymonds, an early resident of the present Darl- 
ington, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, that she descended from the 
following persons: Thomas Rutherford, Jean Mordah (the wife of 
Thomas Rutherford), Walter Clarke (of whom subsequently), and 
John Dunlap, who served in the War of the American Revolution and 
was lost in the Battle of Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, 1777. The 
foregoing pedigrees have been deduced, working from the basis of 
this known ancestry. But some difficult problems have presented 
themselves in connection with the Dunlap lineage. The following is 
submitted. 

At the period of the Battle of Chestnut Hill, 1777, the present 
Dauphin County, — where, as will be shown, lived the widow of John 
Dunlap who was lost in the said battle, — was a part of Lancaster 
County. Search was there made for the will of the father of John 
Dunlap, the Revolutionary soldier. James Dunlap of Donegal Town- 
ship died in 1766, leaving a son John. His will was as follows: 

" .... I James Dunlap of the Township of Donegall .... County of 
Lancaster .... Pennsylvania Yeoman being Sick and Weak .... Do 
make. . . .my last will. . . .1 give. . . .my Beloved wife Agnes Dunlap

While it cannot be stated positively that James Dunlap, maker of 
the foregoing will, was the father of the John Dunlap who was lost in 
the Battle of Chestnut Hill, this is the only will so far found which, 
from dates, names, etc., may have been made by the father of the said 
John Dunlap. 

An early settler in the present Dauphin County was William Dun- 
lap, who, June 25, 1734, received a Warrant of two hundred and fifty 
acres in Hanover Township, then in Lancaster County. The James 
Dunlap of the above will of 1766 had a son, William Dunlap, and the 
dates would indicate the possibility that the William of the Warrant 
may have been father of James of the 1766 will. This supposition is, 
of course, not based on proven facts. 

John Dunlap, soldier of the Revolution, and lost in the Battle of 
Chestnut Hill, tradition of descent from whom is in the family descend- 
ing from Jane Dunlap, wife of John McClymonds, lived in Paxtang 
Township, in what now is Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, but which, 
at the time of his death, was still a part of Lancaster County. He mar- 
ried in or before the year 1774, for in that year his son was born, 
apparently his oldest child. His Revolutionary service was in the 
Company commanded by Captain James Crouch, of which Andrew 
Berreyhill, Senior, was Ensign. The family tradition that he was 
"lost" in the Battle of Chestnut Hill is based on the exact fact, as 
evidenced by the following statements. 

[132] 



ANCESTRY OF JANE DUNLAP 

"I had the Honour to Command a Company in actual Service in 
the year, one thousand, Seven Hundred, and Seventy Seven. Who 
was engaged in an Action, at Chestnut hill with other troops the 
Enemy was too hard for us — we were obliged to Retreat, there was a 
Soldier in my Company Named John Dunlap, Who was a Missing 
when we Returned to Camp — he was not heard of Amongst the Pris- 
oners, Nor found Amongst the Dead, nor heard of since, and in my 
opinion he was kild 

Certified By: James Crouch 

This 1 8th of May 1785. 

I had the Honour to Act as Ensign in the Same Regiment — 
and in the Same Action — & Certify with Capt. James 
Crouch from my own Knowledge, — this 18th of May 1785. 
Sertified By Me Andrew Berreyhill Seneir" 

The occasion of these certified statements was the fact that the 
widow of John Dunlap was in straitened circumstances, was ill, had 
two minor children, and that some of her neighbors in Paxtang Town- 
ship sent a petition to the Court of Quarter Sessions for Dauphin 
County in her behalf. The certificates of the statements of the two 
officers of John Dunlap's military Company were made to substantiate 
the claim made by Mrs. Dunlap's friends that she was entitled to 
financial provision, "According to a Law Pased at Philadelphia the 
20th Day of March 1780." The petition was made in 1785, and stated 
that "the Widow Dunlap — (Widow of John Dunlap who was Lost in 
an Action at Chesnut hill in the year 1777)" had "a Son About eleven 
years old" and also "a Girl about Nine years Old." The petition was 
granted by the Court on September 21, 1786, and inside the document 
recording the grant is what appears a second rehearsal of the peti- 
tion, in which is mentioned "Mary Dunlap Widow & Relict of John 
Dunlap of the towship of Paxton," in which no mention is made of 
the names of her children, but her son is described as "about 12 years 
of age" and her daughter as "about 10." Thus we may place, as the 
birth-date of Soldier John Dunlap's son, the year 1774. 

Since the descendants know that this soldier of the Battle of 
Chestnut Hill was their ancestor and also know that they descend from 
Thomas Rutherford and Jean Mordah, the latter's wife, it must be 
concluded that the John Dunlap who, as stated above, married Mary 

[133] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Gray, grand-daughter of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) Rutherford, 
was the son of the John Dunlap, lost in the Battle of Chestnut Hill. 
Mary Gray, who married this second John Dunlap, was, as has been 
said above, born in 1774. Her husband, John Dunlap, is said to have 
died in 1842, on September 26. The year 1774, which, as stated, was 
that of the birth of the son of John Dunlap, the soldier, would fit 
naturally as the birth-date of John Dunlap, husband of Mary Gray, 
who was also born in that year. 

All the family traditions as to the ancestry of Jane Dunlap appear 
to fit exactly and logically with the ascertained and proven facts. Not 
only is it tradition that she descended from John Dunlap of Chestnut 
Hill fame, but that he was her grandfather. Hence her father was 
this soldier's son, born, as shown above, in 1774. We have naturally 
assumed that this son was the John Dunlap who married Mary Gray, 
since the latter is the only descendant of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) 
Rutherford found to have married a Dunlap, while, as has been noted, 
the descendants of Jane Dunlap know they were also descendants of 
the said Thomas and Jean. 

Jane Dunlap's descendants also state that she was the descendant 
of Walter Clarke, "one of the delegates to the first Constitutional 
Convention of Pennsylvania, held in 1776." Hence, it must be as- 
sumed in accordance with the above chain of reasoning, based on evi- 
dence obtained from documentary sources and from the family records, 
that the wife of John Dunlap, the soldier of Chestnut Hill, was the 
daughter of Walter Clarke, since Jane Dunlap's mother was not a 
Clarke nor the descendant of a Clarke, as her Gray pedigree above 
given makes clear. But it was through Mary Gray, Jane Dunlap's 
mother, that the Rutherford and Mordah ancestry came, as shown. 

Walter Clarke was not only a distinguished and brilliant man, but 
came from a long line of eminent ancestry. This pedigree is as follows. 

Gabriel Clarke, or Clark, the name being spelled in early records 
in both forms, was born in Yorkshire, England, and was an only 
child. It is said that James Hamilton, the Earl of Antrim, happen- 
ing to be in the part of Yorkshire where the Clarke family lived, 
chanced to see Gabriel constructing two mills to grind corn on his 
father's land. He invited the young man to settle on his estates in 
Antrim, in northern Ireland, to take charge of the erection of mills

there. The Earl gave him an estate, near the town of Ballymeana, 
known as "The Grange/' 

Gabriel Clarke was a member of the Society of Friends and built 
a meeting-house for religious worship, also deeding to this organiza- 
tion land for a burying-ground. He and his wife, whose name is 
unknown, were, it is said, the first persons buried therein. 

While the date of Gabriel's birth has not been found, it must have 
been close to the beginning of the Seventeenth Century, for in 1716, 
when his son, Bartholomew Clarke, made his will, the latter spoke of 
himself as "well stricken in years." 

Gabriel Clarke's children were: 

1 Bartholomew Clarke, the eldest, called in his will, "of the 
Grange in the Barony of Toome and county of Antrim," said will 
dated June 18, 1716, the bond for administration of which was given 
December 1, 1716; who had children: Gabriel, Nathaniel, James, Wal- 
ter, Jane, Mary, his son, James, being named as executor of Bartholo- 
mew's will, together with the latter's brother, Walter Clarke. 
11 Nathaniel Clarke, 
in Walter Clarke, of whom below, 
iv Anne Clarke, who married James Greenwood. 

Walter Clarke, son of Gabriel Clarke, may have been born in 
County Antrim, Ireland, at his father's home, The Grange, or he may 
have been born in Yorkshire, England, whence, as stated above, 
Gabriel Clarke went to Ireland. At the time of the Heralds' Visitation 
of Yorkshire, in 1563- 1564, there was in that County an armigerous 
family of Clarke, descended from the Clarkes of Werk, in Northum- 
berland. The Coat-of-Arms of the Clarke family of Werk, North- 
umberland, is blazoned : 

Arms — Argent, on a chevron between three dragons' heads 
erased azure, as many roses or. 

Crest — A dragon's head as in the Arms. 

Motto — Fortitiido. 

Apparently the meeting-house erected by his father had been 
destroyed, or had become in some way insufficient for the require- 
ments, for, in 1705, Walter Clarke "built a meeting House at Grange 
for the Service of the truth and use of Friends."

In the same year, his brother-in-law, James Greenwood, be- 
queathed to him a legacy "to provide hospitality for Friends." 

"Walter Clark of Grange in County of Antrim'' made his will 
April 22, 1724, and died between this date and that of its proving, 
November 15, 1725. In it his wife, Elizabeth, was named as an 
executor. 

Children of Walter Clarke of the Grange and his wife, Elizabeth, 
as mentioned in his will, were: 

1 Gabriel Clarke. 

11 John Clarke, of whom subsequently, 
in Samuel Clarke; came to America in 1735, with endorsement 
from the Friends' Meeting at Lisburn, County Antrim, Ireland, stat- 
ing that he had for "some time past dwelt at Hillsborough which is a 
branch of our Meeting," where he went, from The Grange, in 1729, 
apparently; married Mary, daughter of Michael Lightfoot, "8 Mo. 6, 
1727," at New Garden, and appears to have been a widower in 1729 
when he removed from The Grange; resided, in Pennsylvania, at 
Marlborough, Chester County. 

iv Anne Clarke; married Mercer. 

v Abigail Carke. 
vi Priscilla Clarke, 
vii Jane Clarke. 

viii Elizabeth Clarke ; " 'born and Educated at Grange within the 
Limmits of this Mens Meeting, and her parents were friends in Unity 
with us, (whose memory is dear unto many of us) ;' " lived, after her 
mother's death, with relatives at Dublin and Hillsborough; came to 
Pennsylvania in 1736, with endorsement from the Friends' Meeting 
in Lisburn, County Antrim; married, 1736, Benjamin Jackson. 

John Clarke, son of Walter and Elizabeth Clarke, of The Grange, 
County Antrim, Ireland, was mentioned in his father's will, and was 
apparently the next oldest son. He came to America in 1729, and 
presented the following endorsement to the Friends' Meeting at Ken- 
nett, Chester County, Pennsylvania: 

"From the grang in the County of Antrim in Ireland 7 mo. 2.y. 
1729. These are to certifie whome it may concern that the berer hon- 
est John Clark was bread and born in this place and was the son of

The Kennett Meeting were not satisfied with this general endorse- 
ment of "honest John Clark," and asked for a fuller statement. This 
John Clarke procured and in 1731 "produced certificate from six 
weeks mens meeting held on the Graing in the nation of Ireland." 

He declared his intention of marriage with Hannah Cooper 
"i2mo. 4. 1737," at the Kennett Monthly Meeting, and they were 
married "1st month 8th 1738." Hannah Cooper was the daughter of 
James and Hannah Cooper, who came from Mayfield, Staffordshire, 
England, in 1684, and settled in Darby, Pennsylvania, now in Dela- 
ware County, but then in Chester County. 

Before his residence in Mayfield, Staffordshire, James Cooper is 
said to have been an inhabitant of Bolton, in Lancashire, England. 
He is believed to have gone to Mayfield about 1674. He removed 
from Darby, Pennsylvania, to New Castle, Delaware, and, his wife, 
Hannah, having died, he re-married, November 8, 1705, Mary Lud- 
widge. This marriage took place at an Episcopalian Church, and this 
indicates that he had severed, or did, by this marriage "out of Meet- 
ing," sever his connection with the Society of Friends. But at a 
Monthly Meeting in 1728, held at Kennett, but apparently attended 
by Friends from the Delaware residence of James Cooper, he was 
re-instated to membership in the Society. 

John Clarke and his wife, Hannah Cooper, are said to have been 
living in Sadsbury Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 
1753, but his will has not been found in that County. 

Their children were: 

1 Elizabeth Clarke; born in 1738. 

11 James Carke; born in 1740; married Hannah Hayes.

iv John Clarke. 

v William Clarke; born in 1747. 
vi Samuel Clarke; born in 1749. 
vii Mary Clarke, born in 1749; twin to Samuel. 
viii Hannah Clarke; born in 1752. 

Walter Clarke, the son of John and Hannah (Cooper) Clarke, 
was born "9 mo. 2, 1742." He was born in Paxtang Township, then 
in Lancaster County, but now in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, where 
his parents had evidently removed. The latter had evidently left the 
Society of Friends, for they were early members of the Presbyterian 
Church at Paxtang. 

In November, 1771, Walter Clarke removed from Paxtang and 
settled in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. There, on the 
aforesaid date, he purchased eleven hundred and fifty acres of land, 
which had been surveyed to the Reverend John Ewing, February 22, 
1769. This land Walter Clarke bought in trust for himself, Robert 
Fruit, William Gray, Robert Clarke, and William Clarke. As has been 
stated above in the present study, William Gray, of this list, was also 
an ancestor of Jane Dunlap, his wife being Agnes Rutherford, daugh- 
ter of Thomas and Jean (Mordah) Rutherford, Captain William Gray 
himself being the son of Captain John Gray, founder of the Penn- 
sylvania family. 

Walter Clarke owned one sixth of the tract. Robert and William 
Clarke are said to have been his brothers, but the name of Robert 
does not appear in the list given above of the children of John and 
Hannah (Cooper) Clarke, parents of Walter Clarke. The Robert 
and William, joint purchasers of the said tract, may have been cousins 
of Walter Clarke, but their exact relationship has not been established. 

At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, Committees of 
Safety were established in various localities to keep order and oversee 
the organization of the militia. On February 8, 1776, Walter Clarke 
was one of these "gentlemen, being previously nominated by the 
respective townships to serve on this Committee for the county of 
Northumberland. ..." He was then listed as appointed for "Buffalo 
Township. — Walter Clark (removed to White Deer)," and appears, 
in fact, in the same list, as appointed for White Deer Township. As 

[1461 



ANCESTRY OF JANE DUNLAP 

has been stated above, William Gray was also a member of this Com- 
mittee of Safety, but appointed some months later than was Walter 
Clarke. 

On July 15, 1776, less than two weeks after the Declaration of 
Independence of the Thirteen American Colonies, a Constitutional 
Convention met at Philadelphia for the purpose of forming a State 
Constitution for Pennsylvania. Walter Clarke was sent to this Con- 
vention, which was presided over by Benjamin Franklin, as a dele- 
gate, representing Northumberland County. On March 21, 1777, he 
was appointed Sub-Lieutenant of Northumberland County. But by 
1 78 1 he appears to have become the County Lieutenant. 

Walter Clarke was a member of the Buffalo Cross-Roads Pres- 
byterian Church. This church was probably organized in 1773 an d 
its first Ruling Elders were James McClenachan and Samuel Allen. 
Between 1783, when both these men had died, and 1785 there is no 
record of any Elders being appointed. In the latter year, Matthew 
Laird held this office, and in October, 1787, the Reverend Hugh Mor- 
rison became the minister, serving also the congregations of North- 
umberland and Sunbury. The Buffalo Cross-Roads Church agreed 
to pay Mr. Morrison a stipend of seventy-five pounds a year, and 
among the list of contributors for this purpose is the name of Walter 
Clarke, who was elected an Elder of the Church soon after Mr. 
Morrison's ministry commenced. In a record of the rentals of the 
pews in October, 1791, Walter Clarke's pew was Number 20, William 
Gray occupying Number 29 with Thomas Howard. 

In the first Census of the State of Pennsylvania, Walter Clarke 
appears as head of a household under Northumberland County. In 
his household, besides himself, were two boys under sixteen years of 
age, and three women or girls. 

Soon after this he removed from Northumberland County to 
what was then or soon after Beaver County, Pennsylvania. Beaver 
County was erected in 1800 from Allegheny and Washington Coun- 
ties. There he lived in North Beaver Township, near the Westf ield 
Meeting House. This is now in Lawrence County, and, there, in 
the Westfield Churchyard, Walter Clarke was buried, in 1803, the 
year of his death, as appears from his will. This follows.

This will was proved on December 31, 1803, just four weeks after 
Walter Clarke made it. 

From the foregoing it is evident that he had the following 
children : 

1 Mary, who married John Dunlap and became the grandmother 
of Jane Dunlap, the wife of John McClymonds of Beaver County, 
Pennsylvania; called, in Walter Clarke's will "my oldest child Mary 
Dunlap ;" herein placed as wife of John Dunlap, soldier of the Revolu- 
tion, lost in the Battle of Chestnut Hill, and mother of John Dunlap, 

[148] 



ANCESTRY OF JANE DUNLAP 

who married Mary Gray (as above set forth), this being the only 
possible solution found which harmonizes the evidence found with 
the knowledge of Jane Dunlap's descendants that they descend, 
through her, from John Dunlap, lost at Chestnut Hill, from Thomas 
Rutherford and his wife, Jean Mordah, and from Walter Clarke. 

ii Janet Clarke, probably the daughter of Walter Clarke, to 
whom, without calling his daughter, he bequeathed one hundred and 
seven acres in his will, naming her after his "oldest child Mary 
Dunlap." 

in John Clarke, an executor of his father's will, 
iv Rebecca Clarke, named in her father's will. 

v Elizabeth Clarke, named in her father's will. 

vi A daughter, who married Shener, and died before 

1803, when his orphan grandchildren, Joseph and Unes (Eunice?) 
Shener, were named in Walter Clarke's will. 

The further record of Jane Dunlap and the descendants of her 
marriage to John McClymonds was given in a study of the McCly- 
monds family in The Journal of American Genealogy, Volume I, Num- 
ber 1. 

In the account of the Gray ancestry, given above in the present 
study, mention was made of Susanna Armstrong, wife of Captain 
John Gray, founder of the Gray family in America, or of the branch 
of it which settled in Pennsylvania, and statement was made that the 
lineage of Susanna Armstrong, extending back for several centuries, 
and hence too long for interpolation above, would be set forth at the 
close of this report. This lineage follows. 

The Armstrong family is a very old one and Scottish history and 
romance are full of its chronicles and wild exploits on the Scottish 
Border. 

Thomas Armstrong was Lord of Mangerton, in Roxburghshire, 
Scotland, in the lordship of Liddesdale. On November 2, 1482, he 
executed a deed at Branxhelme, whereby he surrendered Mangerton 
to the Earl of Angus for its bestowal upon David Scott of Branx- 
helme, the latter, on 12th November, 1482, receiving this estate from 
the Earl by charter. But in some way, by purchase, conquest, or 
perhaps marriage, Mangerton soon came back to the Armstrongs, for 
in 1541, in a tax list, it was recorded as owned by them. They owned 

[i49l 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

lands also in Dumfriesshire, adjoining Roxburghshire, and, although 
living actually in Scotland, seem to have considered themselves Eng- 
lish and to have thus fought against the Scotch in the Border war- 
fare. Old Scotch ballads are full of these wild, daring chieftains of 
the Border, who made their strength respected on both sides. 

Thomas Armstrong had four sons, of whom the oldest was 
Alexander, who succeeded as Lord of Mangerton. He had seven 
sons, the oldest, Thomas succeeding, but the line of the present ances- 
tral study coming through the second son, John. This last named was 
founder of the Armstrongs of Gilnockie. 

"Johnnie Armstrang," as he is called in the ballads, headed a 
band of some one hundred and fifty men, but when King James V of 
Scotland, in 1529, determined to put down the Border raids and con- 
stant fighting John Armstrong of Gilnockie appeared with thirty- 
six of his followers and offered his and their services to the King. 
The latter treacherously seized the leader and his men and hanged 
them upon trees at Hawick. One of Armstrong's band is said to 
have been the author of the ballad, "Armstrong's Good-Night," and 
other minstrel-lays on his tragic fate were written, among them one 
entitled "Johnnie Armstrong." It is believed that Sir Walter Scott's 
character of the champion swordsman, in "The Laird's Jock," was 
based on a son of John Armstrong of Gilnockie. 

Christopher Armstrong was the son of the foregoing John Arm- 
strong of Gilnockie. He was known as Christopher Armstrong of 
Langholm, and also owned or held in some form of tenure Stabillgor- 
toun and probably Barnegleis, a castle in Annandale, which last was 
held later by his son, Christopher. 

Christopher Armstrong, sometimes called "John's Christie," of 
Langholm, had sons: John Armstrong of Holiehous; Christopher 
Armstrong of Barnegleis, who also succeded to Langholm; Robert 
Armstrong; William Armstrong, of whom below, and perhaps another 
Christopher Armstrong, he held Aughingill. Aughingill adjoined 
the lands of Barnegleis and Holiehous was at Gilnockie. 

William Armstrong, son of Christopher Armstrong ("John's 
Christie"), was a famous fighter of the Border. He lived at Gil- 
nockie during the reign of King Charles I of England. One of the 
exploits of "Christie's Will," as he was known, was the carrying off 

[150] 



ANCESTRY OF JANE DUNLAP 

of Sir Alexander Gibson, Lord Durie, who was a Judge of the Court 
of Sessions. He took him to an ancient castle in Annandale, called 
the Tower of Graham, and there held the learned Judge a prisoner for 
some three months, the latter believing himself, it is said, to be the 
captive of a sorcerer. Shortly after this "Christie's Will" joined the 
army of Charles I. 

About this period, apparently, he left the Border country, which, 
it may be supposed, would hardly furnish him a peaceful abode, and 
removed, as did his nephew, Andrew Armstrong, to Brookboro, near 
Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, in Ireland, and in Ireland William 
Armstrong died, in batte, fighting as an officer in King Charles' army. 

His wife is said to have been distantly related to him, named Mar- 
garet Elliot. 

Edward Armstrong, son of William of Brookboro, removed, 
about 1650, from Brookboro, and settled at Terwinney, also in County 
Fermanagh. He married "a dark-eyed lass of great beauty and with 
a wealth of rich black hair. She was called a princess at that time, 
being a daughter of the great house of Maguire which down to the 
close of the reign of Elizabeth bore rule in Fermanagh. Until this 
time the Armstrongs carried the blue eyes and fair hair of the Norse 
race, and they were called such names as Fair Johnnie, or Fair Billie, 
but after this we had Black Armstrongs and White Armstrongs." 

It is stated that Terwinney was bestowed either on Edward 
Armstrong or on his father, William Armstrong, for military service, 
and its name signified "The Land of the Cows." 

James Armstrong, son of Edward Armstrong (known as 
"Edward from the Border") and the "Princess" of the House of 
Maguire, succeeded his father in the possession both of Terwinney 
and Brookboro. He died in 1745, and was the father of the family 
of Armstrongs who emigrated to Pennsylvania. His children were: 

1 Edward Armstrong; settled in Pennsylvania about 1744; be- 
came Lieutenant Edward Ward's Company May 22, 1756; was killed 
that year while defending Fort Granville. 

11 George Armstrong; emigrated to Pennsylvania, 
in William Armstrong, of whom subsequently, 
iv General John Armstrong, famous in Pennsylvania Colonial 
history. 

[1511 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

v Margaret Armstrong; emigrated to Pennsylvania. 

vi Andrew Armstrong ("Andro") ; remained in Ireland, 
vn A daughter; married Graydon; remained in Ireland. 

William Armstrong, son of James Armstrong of Terwinney and 
Brookboro, emigrated to Pennsylvania and settled on a tract of two 
hundred acres, west of the Susquehanna, which land he acquired Jan- 
uary 13, 1737. He was a soldier of gallantry and renown and served 
with distinction in the colonial wars. On May 10, 1756, he was com- 
missioned a Lieutenant, and a Captain, December 24, 1757. On July 
4, 1764, he was made Major of the Second Battalion of the Provincial 
Regiment. 

General John Armstrong, in a letter written from Carlisle, 
Pennsylvania, November 2, 1755, and concerning the depredations of 
the Indians, recorded the efficiency of his brother's stoppage to these 
apparently thus : "There are no inhabitants on the Juniata now, nor on 
Tuscarora by this time, my brother William being just come in." 

Major William Armstrong died before December, 1770, on his 
farm in Middletown Township, in the present Dauphin County, Penn 
sylvania. His wife's name was Jean, and they had the following 
children : 

1 John Armstrong. 

11 William Armstrong, 

in Susanna Armstrong, of whom below, 

iv Charity Armstrong. 

v Elizabeth Armstrong, 

vi Alexander Armstrong. 

Susanna Armstrong, the daughter of Major William Armstrong, 
and the latter's wife, Jean, married, as has been stated above, Captain 
John Gray, the line of descent from this marriage having been, in 
the present study, traced down to Jane Dunlap, wife of John McCly- 
monds of Beaver County, Pennsylvania. 

The Coat-of-Arms blazoned for the Armstrongs of King's 
County, Ireland, descending from the Armstrongs of Gilnockie, from 
whom, as set forth above, descended Susanna Armstrong, is as 
follows : 

Arms — Quarterly: first and fourth, argent, issuing from the 

[152] 



ANCESTRY OF JANE DUNLAP 

sinister side, a dexter arm habited gules, the hand grasping the trunk 
of an oak-tree eradicated and broken at the top, proper; second and 
third, argent, three palets azure. 

Crest — An armed arm embowed, the hand grasping the broken 
trunk of an oak-tree eradicated, all proper. 

Motto — Invictus manes. 

The Arms of the Armstrongs of Scotland in general are practi- 
cally as is described the blazon of the first and fourth quarter of the 
King's County Armstrongs, but without Crest or Motto. The Arm- 
strongs doubtless were sufficiently eminent and powerful to bear 
Coat-Armor before the introduction of Crests into British heraldry; 
and a Motto is but a personal device, which may be used, discarded, or 
altered by a branch of a family or by an individual. 

The blazon of the second and third quarter of the shield of the 
King's County Armstrongs is the complete Coat of an "Armstrang" 
family, and, from its simplicity, is ancient. This, it may be, was the 
original form of the Armstrong Arms, the quartering with the arm 
and the oak-tree branch or trunk perhaps having been added in refer- 
ence to an actual exploit or to the meaning of the family name, 
"Strong Arm."

himself, is supposed to have been born about 1586. 
He died October 3, 1656. His will, made in 1655, 
follows :

OLONAL WILLIAM PEPPERRELL came to the 
Isles of Shoales, in 1676, from Tavistock Parish, near 
Plymouth, England, settled fourteen years later at 
Kittery Point, Maine, and married Margery Bray, 
the daughter of Captain John Bray, who took his 
son-in-law into partnership with him. They were the 
foremost shipwrights and merchants of the day. Colonel Pepperrell 
had two sons and six daughters, all of whom married into the best 
families of New England. His youngest son, William, junior, became 
Sir William, the subject of this article. 

Colonel Pepperrell built the Pepperrell mansion at Kittery Point 
in 1680, where he and his son, Sir William, resided. After a lapse of 
over two hundred and forty years since its erection it stands to-day, 
a splendid monument to the builder. This mansion was elegantly 
furnished. The walls were decorated with costly oil paintings and 
the library was the best in that part of the country. The cellar was 
filled with choice wine and good old New England rum. Here the 
Pepperrells lived in great style and their house was the centre of 
hospitality. They kept a coach and six, and a barge manned by slaves 
in uniform. The house was pleasantly located, commanding a view of 
the Piscataqua River, Pepperrell Cove, Tavistock Island and the ocean 
beyond. 

Colonel Pepperrell admitted his oldest son, Andrew, into partner- 
ship with him, under the firm name of William Pepperrell and Son. 
As the young man died when he was thirty-two years old, this business 
arrangement was not of long duration. On his death the firm was

changed to William Pepperrell, and Colonel PepperrelTs second son, 
William, Junior, was admitted to partnership, this connection remain- 
ing unbroken for a quarter of a century. It was the best known firm 
in North America. The Pepperrell wharves and warehouses were 
known in all parts of the old world as well as the new, and led in busi- 
ness in all the colonies. The Pepperrells sent large fleets to all parts 
of the earth to trade. The money received was invested in real estate, 
which rapidly rose in value. They could ride from Kittery to Portland, 
Maine, a distance of sixty miles, on their own estate. 

Colonel Pepper rell's tomb, where he and sixty-four of his de- 
fendants, including Sir William, sleep, is near the mansion. His 
descendants have formed a family association and care for the tomb 
and hold reunions every summer at Kittery Point. Colonel Pepperrell 
held many public offices, among them that of Judge of the Court of 
Common Pleas and Lieutenant Colonel of the militia of the Province of 
Maine. 

Sir William, like his father, frequently held public office. He 
was for thirty-two years a member of the Governor's Council, more 
than half of which time he was Chairman of the Board, an office next 
in rank to that of Governor. He was also Chief Justice for twenty- 
nine years. When Governor Shirley appointed him Commander of the 
Louisburg expedition, with the title of Lieutenant General in 1745, he 
was the richest man in North America. He contributed five hundred 
pounds toward the expense of the expedition, and recruited and 
equipped, in two months, a force from Massachusetts. Rhode Island, 
New Hampshire and Connecticut, which in forty-nine days caused 
the capitulation of the strongest fortress in the new world. 

All the colonies were jubilant over the news of the capture. The 
victory was celebrated in New York, Boston and Philadelphia. Gen- 
eral Pepperrell was created a Baronet of Great Britain — the first 
time this title was ever conferred on a native of America. 

When Sir William landed in Boston, after six months service at 
Louisburg. he was received with honors by the Governor and Council, 
and the streets were decorated with flags and filled with admiring 
and grateful citizens. Probably New England never wittiessed a 
more triumphant march than that of Sir William from Boston to his 

[1581 



SIR WILLIAM PEPPERELL 

home in Kittery. All the large towns through which he passed hon- 
ored him with banquets and fetes. 

In September, 1749, Sir William embarked for London, where he 
was presented at court, King George giving him a cordial reception. 
The Lord Mayor of London, as a token of respect, presented him with 
a service of plate. He arrived at his home in Kittery in October, 

I750. 

In 1755 he was commissioned Major General by the King. In 
1756 he was appointed by the Council commander of Castle William, 
in Boston Harbor, and of the whole military forces of Massachusetts, 
with the rank of Lieutenant General. 

Sir William died at his home in Kittery seventeen years before 
the American Revolution. He left the bulk of his great estate to his 
grandson, William Pepperrell Sparhawk, who inherited the title of 
Baronet and become known as Sir William Pepperrell. It was the 
latter who fled to England, leaving the great estate to confiscation. 
With the death of Sir William Pepperrell, Senior, the name of Pepper- 
rell became extinct in America.

ARTHUR EDWIN BYE, Ph. D. 

HERE can be found, always, if one tries, three reasons 
for everything, and I have found three reasons why, 
or three ways in which the history of the Bye coat of 
arms should be of value to those interested in family 
history. First, there is the romantic value, suggested 
by the term itself "coat of arms/' One thinks at 
once of the Middle Ages, of the crusades, of knights-errant, of old 
legends and tales from Sir Thomas Mallory, Tennyson and Scott. I 
would like to recall some of those adventures of intrepid knights where 
shields, hanging suspiciously upon trees by castle gateways, take a 
prominent part, but I wish to be spared the criticism of "romancing," 
using the term in its loose, fictitious sense, about a family shield and 
crest. 

I would, however, desire to show what numerous associations 
cling about a family coat of arms, what valuable points of contact with 
general history, what surprising leaps into the past we make, and 
what doors we open upon the lives and times of our ancestors, when 
we pry into the origin of a coat of arms. Using the word in its emo- 
tional or personal sense the romantic side of genealogy and heraldry 
has been too much feared by careful scholars, but it is needed to give 
life to dry bones, and romance need not be opposed to history, as any 
one with his eyes open on contemporary life well knows. Coats of arms 
add lustre, brilliancy and beauty to a family history, like the illumin- 
ated letter-heads of an old manuscript. There is, then, this aesthetic, 
or romantic value, if you will, to the Bye coat of arms. 



[162] 



HISTORY OF THE BYE COAT-OF-ARMS 

Then there is the genealogical value. The Bye family is one of 
the old Quaker families of Pennsylvania from which many other fam- 
ilies claim descent. It is true, the Bye family itself has always been 
small. Sons in every generation were scarce, and today the name is 
almost extinct; but daughters were as plentiful as sons were scarce, 
and these married into the pioneer families of Pennsylvania and New 
Jersey and became the ancestresses of many families more historical 
or more generally renowned than the Byes themselves. 

All the Inghams of Pennsylvania lineage are descended from 
Deborah Bye, who married the first Jonathan Ingham of Ingham 
Spring 1 . All the Ellicotts are descended from Anne Bye, who mar- 
ried Andrew Ellicott, Jr 2 . Again, most of the Lintons are descended 
from Elizabeth Bye, who married Nehemiah Blackshaw 3 . Other fam- 
ilies that can be mentioned as derived from the Byes are: The 
Mitchells of Bucks county; the Georges, descended from Mary Bye 
and Thomas George of Tredyferrin; the Davises, descended from 
Margaret Bye and Reese Davis ; the Walls, descended from Anna Bye 
Ellicott, whose son by her second marriage with George Wall was 
Colonel George Wall, a Revolutionary patriot; the Blackfans, de- 
scended from Martha Davis and Crispin Blackfan; the Hutchinsons, 
descended from Elizabeth Bye and Matthias Hutchinson ; the Packers, 
descended from Mercy Bye and Elisha Packer 4 . 

Branches of the families of Betts, Schofield, Eastburne, Moore 1 , 
Ely, Reynolds and Huidekoper are likewise directly descended from 
the Byes. Other families, historically known in Pennsylvania, and 
New Jersey and closely related to the Byes, are : Pearson, Ross, Crewe, 
Kinsey, Taylor of Taylorsville, Canby, Paxson, Passmore, Pusey and 
Pugh. All these families, or representatives of them living today, 
would have more or less of an interest in the Bye arms. 

The third point of interest in the Bye arms lies in the arms 
themselves — that is, their heraldic value, as they are unusual for 
American arms, especially for a Quaker family, and have an extraor- 
dinary history. A study of their origin leads one back into the Middle 

descendant, Honorable Samuel D. Ingham, Secretary of the Treasury, under Jackson. 
a Descendant, Andrew Elliott, Astronomer, time of Revolutionary war. Vide "Andrew Elliott and his 
descendants," Matthews. 

'Through the Lintons descend the Whartons, Newbolds, Satterthwaitcs, Hayhursts and many others. 
♦Descendant, William F. Packer, Civil war Governor of Pennsylvania.

THE BYE ARMS — QUARTERLY OF EIGHT

HISTORY OF THE BYE COAT-OF-ARMS 

Ages, and associates them with many old and noble families of 
England. 

I propose to give, first, the heraldic emblazonment of the arms, 
then to discuss the earliest evidences of their use and the documentary 
references, and lastly to take up the historical associations of each 
quartering. 

I 

Emblazonment 

Quarterly of eight. 

First. Azure, a chevron between three bees, volant en arriere, or. 
(For Bye or Bee of Basingstoke, Hampshire.) 

Second. Quarterly, or and azure, on a bend of the second, three 
fleur de lis of the first. (For Bay of Oxford, Bucks and Lincoln- 
shire.) 

Third. Or, a bend vair, cotised sable. (For Bowyar of Petworth, 
Sussex, and Basingstoke.) 

Fourth. Sable, three spades, blades or handles argent. (For 
Knypersley of Knypersley, Stafford. ) 

Fifth. Argent, a chevron between three mascles sable, within a 
bordure gules. (For Martin of Long Melford, Suffolk.) 

Sixth. Azure, a fesse engrailed between three swan's heads 
erased argent. (For Baker of Sissinghurst, Kent.) 

Seventh. Ermine, two bars gules, charged with three plates, two 
and one. (For Pearson of Marsden, Lanes, and Pennsylvania.) 

Eighth. Same as first, for Bye. 
Crest : A dragon's head or, transpierced with an arrow gules, feath- 
ered argent and gules. 

The seventh quartering belongs only to the senior branch of the 
family, descended from John Bye of Solebury, so that the junior 
branch bears quarterly of six.

These arms, with the first four quarterings, were recorded at 
the time of the Herald's Visitations of 1564 1 . On the 29th of Novem-

ber, 1567, the crest of a dragon's head, transpierced by an arrow, was 
granted to Gilbert Bee or Bey by G. Dethick, Garter King at Arms, 
and Cookie, Clarencieulx 2 . 

In 1573 the full confirmation of the arms was made, as follows: 
"To all and Singuler as well Nobles and Gentills as others to whom 
these presents shall comme Robert Cooke Esquire alias Clarencieulx 
principall herebaullt and Kinge of Armes of the South Este and Weste 
partes of this Realme of Englande from the Ryver of Trent south- 
wards sendeth greetinge in oure Lord God everlastinge. Whereas 
avnciently from the beginninge the valiant and vertuous actes of 
worthie persons have been commended to the worlde with sundry mon- 
uments and remembrances of there good deseurts amongst the which 
the chiefest and most usuall hath ben the bearinge of signes in shieldes 
called armes whiche are evident demonstraceons of prowes and valoir 
diversely destributed accordinge to the qualities and desertes of ye 
persons which order as it was most prudently devised in the beginning 
to stirre and kindell the hartes of men to the imitacion of virtue and 
noblesness. Even so hath ye same been and yet is continually observed 
to the ende that such as have don commendable service to there Prince 
or Country either in warre or peace may bothe receave due honor in 
their lives and also derive the same successively to their posterity 
after them, and beinge requyred of John Bee of Basingstoke, gentle- 
man, to make search in the Registers and Records of my office for 
the ancient armes belonging to that name and families whereof he is 
descended, whereupon I have at his request made search accordingly, 
and whereby find the said John Bye to be the first son of Gilbert Bye, 
of Basingstoke, in the countie of Hampsher, gent and of Elizabeth his 
wife, daughter and heire of John Bowyar, gentelman, which Gilbert 
Bye was son and heir of John Bye of the saide place and countie

Robert Cooke, 
Clarencieulx/' 

A copy of this document is preserved in the British museum 1 . 
It will be noticed that Clarencieulx refers to these arms as "con- 
firmed," not granted as new, and that they are the arms rightly belong- 
ing to John and Robert Bee because descended to them from their 
ancestors. That is, they must date at least prior to the first John 
Bye or Bee here mentioned, living circa 1475. Cooke also states that 
he grants a new crest, but the previous record of 1567 refers to this 
crest, and hence the crest is not new, in spite of Cooke. The crest was 
evidently the ancient crest of the Byes, but never officially recognized. 
Concerning Cooke's spelling of the name Bee, and his reference to the 
quartering with the spades for Swettenham more will be said 
presently 2 . 

The next reference to the Bye arms is in the pedigree of Bye of 
Basingstoke recorded by the Heralds in 1622. This pedigree is printed 
in Berry's "County Families," together with a reproduction of the 
arms and crest 3 . 



1 Reprinted in Misscell. Gen. et Her. N. S. vol. lv. pp. 386 — 87. 

2 Baigent and Millard in their "History of Basingstoke" allude to this grant of arms and state the 
spelling Bee is a mistake for Bye. 

•Arms and Pedigree are also given in the published "Visitation" of Hampshire; of the Hareleian 
Society. 



[167] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Besides the above references, the Bye coat of arms, without the 
quarterings, are given in Guillim's celebrated work, "A Display of 
Heraldry." Porny in his "Heraldry" also illustrates the Bye arms, 
and both of these writers dilate at length on the significance of the 
insect bee as a charge. Porny may be quoted thus : 

"Bees, the most wonderful and profitable insect yet known, have 
been treated of by naturalists in different ages; and some pretend 
there have been philosophers who spent the greatest part of their 
lives in studying their nature. They may serve in Heraldry to repre- 
sent Industry" ! It may be interesting to note that the bees were the 
ancient arms of the fourteenth century Kings of France, and also 
of Napoleon, who revived them. The Bees are also the charge of the 
Barons de Bye of Holland and Belgium at the present day. 

Other standard works on heraldry where the Bye arms may be 
found are "Glover's Ordinary," Burke's "General Armory," Fair- 
bairn's "Crests" and Reitstap's European Encyclopedia of arms called 
"Armorial Generale." Hence, as far as the Herald's College and the 
Visitations are concerned, and the standard authorities on heraldry, 
the Bve arms are well authenticated.

i. For Bye or Bee. It will have been noticed that the first two 
quarterings in Cooke Clarencieulx' emblazonment were given for 
"Bee." This is unusual and rare in heraldry. When it occurs it is 
generally due to there having been two coats used in ancient times, 
one more recent and more generally familiar, the other older, with 
historic associations which the family prize. 

The Bye arms are canting arms; that is, they play upon the 
name. Bye was pronounced Bay in the late Middle Ages, as it is 
thoroughly explained in Sir James Murray's New Century Diction- 
ary. Bee was also pronounced Bay, so that one living, say, in the 
fourteenth century in Oxford or Hampshire would speak of ships in 
the bye and bays in the bay-hives. 

The antiquity of this quartering must be even earlier than 1475 

[1681 



HISTORY OF THE BYE COAT-OF-ARMS 

as before suggested. The Bee Family of Skeffling Hall, Skeffling, 
Holderness, Lincolnshire, flourishing in the seventeenth century and 
earlier, bore exactly the same arms and crest. The pedigree of this 
family is extant, and no trace of any connection with the Hampshire 
family is recorded as far back as the sixteenth century. Now it is 
known that the Hampshire family originated in Lincolnshire late in 
the fourteenth century 1 , hence the common origin of these two fam- 
ilies and their arms must have been as early as the late fourteenth 
century, or early fifteenth. 

The antiquity of this coat is further suggested by the fact that 
it was used by a family of Bee in New Castle upon Tyne in the early 
fifteenth century. Thomas Bee was sheriff of New Castle county in 
1443. He bore, for arms, "Argent, three bees Sabbe 2 ." In 1529 Bar- 
tholomew Bee was sheriff of New Castle and bore "Argent, three bees 
volant sable 2 ." Thus there is record for a family surnamed Bee, using 
the canting arms, as early as 1433. 

II. Also for Bye, or Bay, or Bee. This second quartering is 
older and has greater historical importance, for these are the ancient 
arms of a branch of the baronial family of de Bayeux. In fact the 
surname Bye is a corruption of Bayeux (vulgarly pronounced Bay-u, 
but more correctly Bye-u). This surname occurs in the following 
forms in the rolls of the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries, Baocis 
( Latin). Bayous, Bayus, Bay, Ba, Baa^, Baay, Byus, Bayes, Baye, By, 
— the dropping of the ending, eux or ous, being the most common, 
leaving Bay 3 . 

The first Ranulph de Bayeux lived shortly after the Conquest and 
married Margaret, daughter of sole heiress of Alan, Baron de Lincoln, 
son of Alfred, Earl of Lincoln under Edward the Confessor. Ranulph 
or Ralf was the son of William Meschines de Bayeux, Lord of 
Copeland, and Cecilia de Romilly of Skipton Castle, and Ranulph wa^ 
a nephew of Ranulph de Bayeux, Earl of Chester, and grandson of 
Ranulph, Viscount of Bayeux in Normandy, and Matilda the niece of 
William the Conqueror. Hence he was a great-nephew of William the 
Conqueror. 

1 The pedigree is given in "The Pedigree Register" for September, 19 15. 

2 Surtees Soc. Pub. vol. 41. Carr Ms. "Catalogue of the mayors and sheriffs of his majesty's town 
and county of New Castle." 

8 An exact parallel instance of the slurring of Bayous, or Bayus as it was then pronounced, into Bay, 
Bye or Bee occurs in the more famous patronymic of Caius which gave the name to Caius College 
Cambridge, which was also written Kay, Kye and Key, and is today pronounced "Key's College" See Diet.

[169] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

The Barony of Bayeux in Lincoln became extinct through two 
coheiresses in the time of Edward II., the estates passing to the Mall- 
orys, Brackenburys and Bessilles. The history of this barony has been 
given by Sir Thomas Banks in his "Extinct Baronies," where it is 
called the Barony of Bay and the Barons are all given the surname 
Bay. A complete survey was made in 1288, an account of which, 
together with the pedigree of the families connected with it, is given in 
"Lincolnshire Notes and Queries" for April and July, 1904. But 
the branches held manors in various counties. In Kent one of these 
branches held Bay Manor, and the tomb of Sir Thomas Bay in Ikham 
Church, — he died circa 134A — is still existing. 

John Weever, in the seventeenth century, wrote a book called 
"Ancient Funeral Monuments of Great Britain and Ireland," in which 
he described an old monument in Ikham Church, Kent: "In this 
church I saw an old monument, upon which only these words are 
remaining 'His — a, Miles' and in the window under his arms in an 
old character written Thomas de Ba,' of which short surname I 
find nothing related in writing, nor delivered by word of mouth, 
either short or long." There is almost pathos in this illustration of the 
extinction of a once famous family, so that its strange surname was 
unknown in the seventeenth century. 

The manor of Covington in Northamptonshire was held by a fam- 
ily of Baye or Bayes descended from the baronial family, until the 
time of Elizabeth. 

The original arms of the Barons de Bayeux or Bay were barry of 
eight, or and gules, the arms of Romilly, and later they were differ- 
enced by three escollops of the first on a chief of the second. Sir 
Thomas Banks gives the arms of the Barons de Bay as paly of six, or 
and gules, on a chief of the second, three escollops of the first, which 
is merely a substitution of stripes for bars. A family named Bye con- 
tinued to use these arms down to the eighteenth century, merely sub- 
stituting bee-hives for escollop shells, and families by the name of Bay 
and Bee used the undifferenced arms of the baronial family up until 
the present time 1 . 

Owing to the many branches of the Bay family, and among them 

iCornelius Bye of Gloscester, living circa 1750 used the striped arms with bee-hives. The Bays of 
London — William Bay, living 1632 — bore the identical arms of Sir William de Bayeux who fought at the 
Battle of Boroughbridge. The Bees of Horslew, Lincolnshire, bore barry of four, or and gules, the oldest 
arms of the barons de Bay. This family also bore, according to Berry in his "Guide to Heraldry," 
Quarterly, or and gules, on a bend sable, three fleur de lis argent. Thus these three coats, the Bees, 
the escollops, and the fleur de lis were used variously by Bay, Bee and Bye. 

[170] 



HISTORY OF THE BYE COAT-OF-ARMS 

numerous knights and manorial lords, it was the custom to introduce 
slight changes in the paternal coat, to distinguish them. Thus one 
branch differenced their arms thus : Bendy, or and gules, on a chief of 
the second three escollops of the first. Another: Quarterly, or and 
gules, on a bend sable three escollops of the first. Sir John de Bay of 
Oxford, living 1350, bore: Quarterly, argent and azure, on a bend 
gules three fleur de lis, or 1 . 

The Bay family of Bradwell, Bucks and Morton, Oxford, from 
which the Hampshire family of Bye or Bee was descended, bore these 
same arms, with the difference that they are entirely or and azure, 
and thus identical with the second quartering of the Bye arms of 
Basingstoke. The manor of Bradwell in Bucks was one of the original 
manors of the barony of Bayeux or Bay, and its history in connection 
therewith is clearly traced by records in the Patent and Close Rolls. 
One of the knights of the Bradwell Bays was Sir Robert de Bay, son of 
Sir Richard of Covington, which Richard was knighted by King 
Edward I at the same time as the Prince of Wales, later Edward II. 
In 1302 Sir Robert married Maud, daughter of Sir William de Burton, 
Lord of Tolethorpe, a chief justice of England and ambassador to the 
Court of Holland. 

This quartering by itself, with the fleur de lis, was also the arms 
of Colonel John By, the founder of Bytown, now called Ottawa, 
Canada. 

III. For Bowyar of Petworth and Basingstoke. These arms 
were added to the Bye family shield by the marriage of Gilbert Bye 
of Basingstoke with Elizabeth, daughter and eventual heiress of John 
Bowyar of Basingstoke, descended from the Bowyars of Petworth. 
John Bowyar was Mayor of Basingstoke. In 1491 he built one of the 
finest houses in the town on Church Street, and was fined three shill- 
ings for encroaching on the highway! Thus he had to pay for his 
ostentation. The pedigree of the Bowyars went back to Aldred le 
Bowyar in the twelfth century. The family was likewise descended 
from the famous Brocas of Beaurepaire and Rochecourt, Basingstoke ; 
one of the ancestors of Elizabeth Bowyar, who married Gilbert Bye, 
being Sir. Bernard Brocas, to whom there is a monument in Westmin- 
ster Abbey. This is the Sir Bernard Brocas who was said to have cut

off the King of Morocco's head, as mentioned in Addison's famous 
essay in the Sir Roger de Coverly papers. Through the Dynelys, 
Oglaunders, Foxleys and de Lisles, Barons of Wooton, historic fam- 
ilies of that part of England, the Bowyar pedigree went back to the 
Courtneys, Earls of Devonshire, and hence to the Plantagenet house 
of England 1 . 

IV. For Knypersley of Knypersley. These arms were brought 
in with the Bowyar marriage, as Bowyar quartered Knypersley of 
Knypersley. Because the arms of Swettenham, an ancient family of 
Lancashire, were charged with spades, Cooke in 1573 assumed this 
quartering was for Swettenham ; but the Bowyars inherited Knypers - 
ley in the fourteenth century. Thomas Bowyar, living 2 Richard II., 
1379, married Katharine de Knypersley, heiress of Knypersley. As 
the family of Bye, through Bowyar, thus represents Knypersley, it 
may be interesting to outline the lineage of this old and extinct fam- 
ily. Richard Forestarivs, a baron of William the Conqueror, was the 
father of Ormus le Guidon, who held in capite Biddulph and fifteen 
other manors, including Knypersley, in Stafford. Alured de Biddulph 
inherited Knypersley as his share of his father's estate, and his de- 
scendants assumed the name of Knypersley de Knypersley instead of 
Biddulph, in the reign of Henry III. 

Sir Thomas Bowyar, baronet and ancester of the baronets Bowyar 
of Leythorne; Sir Francis Bowyar, baronet, ancestor of the baronets 
Bowyar of Denham Court and Radley, were close kinsmen to Eliza- 
beth, who married Gilbert Bye, and quartered Knypersley. 

V. and VI. for Martin and Baker. These are the arms confirmed 
to Sir Roger Martin, Lord Mayor of London in 1568. His daughter, 
Susan, eventual coheiress, married Robert Bye of London. Sir Roger 
Martin was one of the wealthiest citizens of London in his day. In 
1 571 Sir Thomas Gresham, the Queen's agent in Flanders, presented 
to the Lords fifty-nine bonds passed under the great seal of England 
and of the city of London, for her Majesty's use, of which five were 
to Sir Roger Martin for an aggregate sum of £7,121, or over $35,000, 
which represents an equivalent of ten or twelve times that amount 
today. For this assistance in financing Queen Elizabeth, he was 
allowed to take 12 per cent interest. Another story is told about Sir 

1 Full accounts of the Bowyars will be found in Dallaway's "Sussex."

Roger's munificence. He lived to be nearly one hundred years old, 
and "was so remarkable for his charity that when he declined with 
age, and was not able to go far from home, he had a whistle to his cane 
by which he called the poor to him 1 ." 

He married Lettice, daughter of Humphrey Packington, Esquire, 
of Chaddesley Corbet, second brother of Sir John Packington of 
Hampton, Glocester, which Sir John was one of the eminent men of 
his day. The Packingtons in the next century were created baronets. 
The Martin family to which Sir Roger belonged was that seated at 
Long Melford, Suffolk, and were afterwards baronets. They were 
descended from the Martins, Lords of Athelhampton, Dorset, who at 
one time were Barons of Dartington and Camoys in Wales. William 
Fitz Martin was Baron of Blagdon in Somerset, Lord of Llanhever 
Castle and Baron of Camoys in Wales, and was living 1 158-1209. He 
married Avieia, daughter of Rhvs ap Griffith, Prince of South Wales, 
Robert Martin or Fitz Martin, the great-grandson of this couple, was 
the founder of the Dorset Line 2 . 

Previous to the reign of Henry VII, the family of Martin of Long 
Melford married an heiress of the family of Baker, seated at Sissing- 
hurst, Cranbrooke, Kent. The pedigree of this family begins in the 
reign of Edward IV. In the next century the Bakers became eminent. 
Several members were connected with the Court. George Baker was 
chief surgeon to Queen Elizabeth, Peter Baker was an admiral who 
was captured by the Spaniards and died in prison in Spain, while Sir 
John Baker of Sissinghurst was chancellor to Henry VIII, and secre- 
tary to the Privy Council of Edward VI and Queen Mary. His children 
and grandchildren allied themselves with such historic houses as Sock- 
ville, Tirrell, Dacres Lords Hurstmoreceaux and Sandys, Barons 
Sandys. 

VII. For Pearson. The Pearson quartering was acquired by 
the marriage of John Bye of Solebury, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 
with Sarah, daughter and coheiress of Thomas Pearson, in 1704. 
Thomas Pearson was a persecuted Quaker of Lancashire, a kinsman 
of Thomas Pearson, the friend of William Penn, who named Chester, 
Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Grace, and three daughters, Grace, 
Sarah and Elizabeth, sailed for Pennsylvania in 1698; Thomas, how-

ever, died on the voyage over. To record this as a dry fact seems 
almost impossible. What a tragedy is suggested by this incident. A 
wife and daughters left to struggle with the wilderness, and yet how 
often I have passed over suggestions such as these ! Was I wrong in 
stating there is the romantic side to a history of a coat of arms? 
Grace, his wife, was the daughter of John Vipont, of Briarcliffe, 
Westmoreland, and Elizabeth Wilkinson, daughter of James Wilkin- 
son of Monk Hall, Entwisel. John Vipont was a scion of the ancient 
house of de Vipont, barons of Westmoreland. 

In the person of Grace Vipont Pearson we have one of those 
exceptional instances of a descendant of an historic family emigrating 
to America and bringing with her the blood of many of the most 
ancient noble families of England, for the de Viponts had united in 
times past with the houses of Fitz Piers, barons of Berkhampstead, 
Ferrers, Earls of Derby, Buisli of Tickhill Castle, and de Morville. 
The same de Morville family, we must truthfully relate, one of whose 
members was a murderer of St. Thomas a Becket. The Viponts 
themselves derived their estates and honors from Ranulph de Bayeux, 
Earl of Chester, the same Ranulph of whom we have spoken before, 
and were barons of Westmoreland in right of their descent from 
Agnes de Bayeux, Ranulph's daughter. 

Because Grace Vipont arrived in America as Grace Pearson her 
own name was lost to this country. Her daughter and coheiress, 
Grace, married Robert Heaton of Middletown, 3rd. mo. 8th, 1700; 
and the daughter of Robert and Grace, Grace Heaton, married Jere- 
miah Croasdale of Middletown, 7th mo. 16th, 1920. Elizabeth, the 
third daughter, married John Stackhouse, of Middletown. Hence 
descendants of Robert and Grace Heaton, of John and Elizabeth 
Stackhouse, as well as those of Jeremiah and Grace Croasdale, like the 
Byes, can claim the Vipont lineage.

N the old ballad of Chevy Chase, Montgomery mas- 
querades as Mongonbyrry. Some one, trying to 
improve on this, or the reverse, has tried to make us 
believe that in that mythical period, known as "once 
upon a time," the name was Mumdegrumbie. Difficult 
as this is to spell offhand, it would certainly be a poser 
when it came to pronunciation. Giving it the "go-by," we will be 
satisfied with the name as it now appears, with the one variation, 
Montgomerie, the family name of the Earls of Eglinton. If desiring 
forms which were quite legitimate about two centuries ago, there are 
Montgommeri and Montgomery 

Seeking the origin of the name, we meet with all sorts of theories, 
and travel back to the time of the flood, or to Gomer, son of Japhet, 
and are told that Gomer, being the hereditary name of the Gauls, many 
localities are thus called. For example, in Normandy there is Mont 
Gomerie; in Italy, a lofty hill, Monte Gomero, or to give it its old 
Latin name, Mons Gomeris. 

It is not until the tenth century that we arrive at something 
tangible, in Roger de Montgomerie, a count of Normandy, time 912. 
In the next century we discover a grandson of his presumably, and of 
the same name and title. That he accompanied his kinsman, William 
the Conqueror, in 1066, was, of course, only to be expected of him. 

As a reward of valor he was created Earl of Arundel and Shrews- 
bury, and had manors without number. For him the town Montgom- 
ery, Wales, was named. In the time of William Rufus, Pembroke 
Castle was built by Arnulph de Montgomerie. Walter Montgomerie, 
high steward of the royal house of Stuart, was the first Earl of 
Eglinton. 

"Memorables of the Montgomeries" tells in rhyme the family

story, and gives us to understand that a noble Roman knight was the 
founder. 

"He brought his legion from the sea, 

And settled the same 

Upon an hill 'twixt Rome and Spain, 

Gomericus by name." 
Here is certainly some rhyme, even if no reason. 

"At length he sailed for England, 

Because his ambition hath no end." 
Rhyme as well as reason fail here. 

About the time of the American Revolution, or shortly before, 
William and Joseph, sons of Joseph Montgomery, came to America. 
They were of Scotch descent, out born in Ireland. Joseph entered the 
Continental army, but after the war returned home. William, who 
had remained here but a short time, came back again about 1805 and 
settled in Ohio County, Virginia. He had three sons and as many 
daughters. One son, William, born 1792, founded the Pennsylvania 
branch of the family, removing to Washington County, Pa., in 181 7; 
he married Elizabeth Kelly. His brother, Joseph, made his home in 
Virginia. One of the founders of Virginia — "Pioneer John" Lewis, 
born in Ireland — was the father of many sons. One, Colonel William, 
born 1724, married Anne Montgomery, and had eight children. 
Colonel William was an officer under Braddock, and one of his sons, 
Major John Lewis, was with Washington at Valley Forge. The 
latter's brother, Thomas, also an officer, and distinguished for gal- 
lantry, was called the modern Chevalier Bayard. 

William Lewis was born in Ireland, and if he married there, his 

wife, Anne, may have been of the family of the pioneer Montgomerys. 

Another notable marriage connection was that with the Lane 

family; Rev. William Montgomery's wife being Elizabeth, daughter 

of that patriot and Revolutionary hero, Jesse Lane. 

An immigrant, also born in Ireland, was John Montgomery, who 
settled in Pennsylvania and was a member of the Continental Con- 
gress. He has a splendid record to recall, by descendants desiring 
affiliation with patriotic societies. He was captain of an expedition 
sent against the Indians; treasurer of Cumberland County, Pa., 1767; 
captain of a regiment that joined Washington on Long Island, and 
one of the burgesses of Carlisle, Pa., 1787. His son, John, became 

[180] 



MONTGOMERY FAMILY 

mayor of Baltimore, member of Congress, and attorney-general of 
Maryland. 

Others of the Pennsylvania family, members of the Continental 
army, were Joseph, born in Dauphin County, who was chaplain, and 
also delegate to Congress ; Ensigns William and Samuel, and Lieuten- 
ants Hugh and James. The Virginia representatives, among others, 
were Lieutenant James and Colonel John; Joseph, of Delaware, was 
chaplain, Michael of New York, and Nathaniel of Massachusetts, 
were lieutenants. 

General Richard Montgomery's history is well known. He was 
born at Conway House, Ireland, son of Thomas Montgomery, and 
came to America in 1772. He married Janet, sister of Chancellor Liv- 
ingston, and a pathetic as well as a dramatic story is told of her watch- 
ing alone the cortege as it passed down the Hudson River, bearing her 
husband's body. 

While kinship has been claimed by the descendants of the 
brothers, Joseph and William, with the family of General Montgom- 
ery, no proof of relationship has been forthcoming. The most to build 
on, perhaps, is "family likeness." The General is described as tall, of 
fine presence, winning manners, and the bearing of a prince. 

Among a number of rare autograph letters, recently offered for 
sale, and including some Washington data, was General Montgomery's 
last letter to Sir Guy Carleton, demanding the surrender of Quebec. 

A naval officer of the New Jersey branch of the family was John 
Berrien Montgomery, who was in the War of 181 2, and the Mexican 
war, where his gallant conduct won the thanks of Congress and a 
sword. 

Mighty with the pen as well as with the sword, may be said of 
the Montgomerys, even if Byron did "damn with faint praise" one 
James, a Scotch poet, by calling him "a man of considerable genius." 
There was Alexander, a poet of the sixteenth century, who wrote son- 
nets industrially, and very good sonnets. Two, named George, were 
authors; one was born in Spain; the other, born 1810, in Maine, was 
both writer and preacher. 

Three fleur-de-lis, or, is the Montgomery coat-of-arms. The one 
attributed to Hugh Montgomery of New Hampshire, 1719, from 
Down, Ireland, is blazoned : Azure, three fleur-de-lis, or.

The first mention of this name occurs in the Domesday Book of 
Exon, where a certain Vice-Comes Bal is named as a landed pro- 
prietor. In the "Worthies of Broon" there is an account of Sir Peter 
Ball, who was skilled in the science of antiquities, and wrote several 
volumes on the subject. 

The "brotherhood of man" was first preached by John Ball, 
Puritan divine, who was born in England in the fourteenth century. 
He is mentioned by Froude, who says that he was the moving spirit in 
the insurrection of 138 1. It was this same John Ball, preacher, who 
once took for his text the classic (?) lines: 

"When Adam delved and Eve span, 
Who was then your gentleman ?" 

One of the heroes of the family was Major Ball, who alone and 
unarmed, taking his life in his hand, went into the forest of Ladys- 
wood, to parley with Highland deserters, inducing them to return to 
their allegiance. Sir Alexander Ball, Admiral of the Blue, distin- 
guished himself at the siege of Malta, and was made governor of the 
island. Half a century before, Thomas Ball defended the castle of 
Salonica a year against the Turks, and of him Mahommed, second 
Emperor of the Turks, said that in the great country of the Pelopon- 
nesus he had found many heroes, but never a man but him. 

Some one of the family has said of the Balls : "They are fond 
of land and learning, positive in their convictions, bold in utterance, 
independent in action, intelligent, patriotic, and often intensely reli- 
gious." Frances Ball, daughter of a wealthy Dublin merchant, estab- 
lished no less than thirty-seven convents. Hannah Ball was one of 
Wesley's most devoted followers. By his advice she broke off a mar- 
riage engagement with one who was an ungodly man — from the stand- 

[183]

point of the Church. This, Wesley termed an uncommon instance of 
resolution. 

Ball is a name of Saxon derivation, from bal, meaning bold, also 
quick, swift. The first upon whom the name was bestowed was doubt- 
less swift, or bold, to do and dare. De Balle is one form of the name ; 
other variations are Balle, Bale, Baul and Bal. Bal is a Belgian sur- 
name. 

Ball and Balls are the present-day forms of the name in England. 
Baliol and Balliol are said to be derived from the same root. 

Considering the connection of the Ball and Washington families, 
it is rather curious to note that Wass, from which Washington is 
derived, is an old Norse word — the original spelling was hvass — and 
it means keen, bold. 

One of the early settlers in this country was Francis Ball, who 
came over in 1640, and helped to found Springfield, Mass. He was a 
son of William Ball, of Wiltshire, and one of six brothers, all of whom 
came to seek their fortunes in the western world. All the Massachu- 
setts branch of Balls are descendants of Francis and his wife, Abigail 
Burt, who was one of a family of a round dozen and a half plus one — 
nineteen brothers and sisters. 

It was one of this family — Martha Ball Stebbins — who named 
her four daughters Martha, Mary, Mercy, and Miriam. Apparently 
she liked any name provided it began with "M." In another Ball 
family were the sons and daughters equally distributed — seven each, 

Ailing or Allen Ball was a New Haven settler. It was his grand- 
daughter who married Nathaniel Wadsworth, a near relative of the 
Wadsworth whose deed of daring in connection with the Connecticut 
charter, in 1687, has often been told, for did he not put out the lights 
and hide the charter in the oak tree? There be some, however, woe 
betide us, who take away this pretty tale, calling it a myth. Santa 
Claus and William Tell and other classic gentlemen are laid low, and 
now the story of the Charter Oak is to go ! 

Edward Ball, of Branford, Ct., joined the party of New Engend- 
ers who moved to New Jersey and helped to build up Newark. 

In the South the Balls have been a power from the first. 
Washington's ancestor, Colonel William Ball, came over about 1650, 
and settled in Lancaster County, where he gave the name "Millen- 

[1841 




[i8 5 ]

beck" to his estate, and for six generations there was a William Ball 
of Millenbeck. His friend and neighbor was John Washington, grand- 
father of George Washington. 

Colonel Ball had married, in England, Hannah Atherall of 
Suffolk, and they had four children. One was Colonel Joseph, of 
Epping Forest, who married Julia Romney, and, after her death, Mary 
Montague Johnson, or the "Widow Johnson.'' a descendant of the 
ancient and honorable house of Montague, which was founded by 
Drogo de Montacuto. in the eleventh century. 

It was her daughter, Mary Ball, who married Augustine, son of 
John Washington, and their son was George Washington. 

Alary Ball was a blue-eyed maiden — the "Rose of Epping Forest," 
she was called — and the reigning belle of the Northern Neck. 

It has been said that if Washington was great, Alary Ball was 
greater, for she taught him how to use his natural, divinely implanted 
gifts to best advantage. At the Yorktown ball, given after Corn- 
wallis' surrender, the titled foreigner observed her with amazement. 
"Is that the mother of the great chieftain whose fame fills two hemis- 
pheres ?" they asked. She wore no diamonds, no lace, no feathers, no 
velvet, no brocade, only an unadorned robe of home-made material, 
spotless, but severely plain, simple in garb, but majestic, serene. 

The exclamations of wonder at the simplicity of her appearance 
were exchanged for the tribute : "If such be the matrons of America, 
no wonder she has illustrious sons !" 

Notwithstanding Alary Washington's placid expression, she had 
a high temper, although under wonderful control. Apropos to this 
temper, which her son inherited, Lee, when dining at Mount Vernon, 
said to Mrs. Martha Washington : "Gilbert Stuart says, madame, that 
General Washington has a prodigious temper." To this she replied: 
"Mr. Stuart takes great liberties with General Washington's char- 
acter." 

"Ah! madame, but Air. Stuart says he has it under wonderful 
control." 

The Balls were connected with many other well-known Virginia 
families. In 1680 Elizabeth Ball married Michael Musgrave, "gent." 
Their daughter Elizabeth married Ogle Riggs, of Hollist House, 
Sussex, England. From their eleven children have sprung many 

[186] 



BALL FAMILY 

famous families — the Goodmans, of Philadelphia, British Columbia, 
and Canada; the Riggs, of Massachusetts, and the Egertons, of New 
York. There is romance enough in the family histories to furnish 
a three-volume novel — several of them, in fact. The artist, Thomas 
Goodman, set the pace by eloping with Martha, daughter of Henry 
Riggs. By marriage with the Halliways the Goodmans annexed a 
long pedigree. Other marriage connections of the Balls include the 
Lees, Jones, Youngs, Conways, Chinns, and Carnegies. 

Revolutionary rolls furnish the names of scores of Balls, and 
among the number are seventeen named John. Twenty-one from New 
Jersey, enrolled as privates, and nine as officers, were recognized by 
Washington as relatives. 

Several were at Valley Forge. The sword and spontoon of 
Jonathan B., all are still in existence. Of another Jonathan, who was a 
major in the Revolution, it is put down that he made a fine appearance 
on horseback. 

The coat of arms illustrated was brought over by Colonel Ball, 
and a painting on parchment is still extant, w T ith the colors but little 
faded. It is: Argent, a lion passant, sable; on a chief of the second, 
three mullets of the first. 

Crest: Out of the clouds, proper, a demi-lion, rampant, sable, 
powdered with estoiles, argent, holding a globe, or. 

Motto: Coelum tueri — ''Look upward." This coat-armor was 
granted 1613 to the family of Kent, Cheshire, and Northampton. 
The arms of the Balls of New England are the same, but the crest and 
motto are different. The crest is a tag trippant ; the motto, Semper 
cavelo — "Always be cautious.'' 

As if in reference to the name, the arms have much that is bold 
about them — the lion rampant, and the crest betoken strength and 
courage. 

The mullet is one of the marks of cadency, and is borne by the 
third son. The mullet was formerly supposed to be the rowel of a 
spur, but it appeared in heraldry before spurs were used. The points of 
a mullet are clear cut, while those of an estoile, or star, are wavv. 

A call was sent out recently to Balls, North, East, West, South, to 
meet and "recount sober, honest doings of our ancestors, their piety 
and loyalty, their services to Church and State. Perhaps the Chinese 

[1871

overdo reverence for ancestors, but Americans are surely at fault for 
indifference to past and to parentage. Let our forefathers be neither 
unhonored nor unsung." 

While descent is good, says one, and we should pay reverence to 
our worthy sires, ascent is better. 

"Not all the blood of all the Howards 

Can e'er ennoble knaves or fools or cowards. "

The family of Dubois, or duBois, in this country, traces back to 
the noble Huguenot refugees, Louis and Jacques du Bois, sons of 
Cretien or Christian du Bois of Artois, who was a lineal descendant 
of Macquaire du Bois, Count de Ronsoy, living at the beginning of the 
twelfth century. 

The name is one of the oldest in France, and has more extensive 
marriage connections, so the historian of the family declares, than any 
other, "and," he adds, "I have never, but in one instance, found it 
written in French records, otherwise than with the small 'd' and capi- 
tal 'B' — du Bois." The prefix de, de la, or du, a contraction of de le, is 
a badge of noble extraction. The origin of the name du Bois would 
seem to be de le bois — of the wood, or forest ; one who lived in or near 
a wood. The similar name, Dubosc, means "of the thicket." 

Variations of the name are de la Boe, Dubos, Dubose, Dubost, and 
possibly, Du Buysson, also Du Bubossari. One of the prime ministers 
of France was Cardinal du Bois. 

It would perhaps be a surprise to his friends if Mr. Dubois signed 
himself Sylvius, yet Jacques Dubois, a famous French anatomist, was 
also known under the Romanized form of the name — Jacobus Sylvius. 
Then there was Franciscus Sylvius — or de le Boe. 

From France the family spread to England and Flanders. The 
first of the name in England, was the Knight Geof fori du Bois, one of 
William the Congueror's train. Another bold warrior was Pierre du 
Bois, who served in the army under Henry IV. of France. 

Louis "du Bois," as he always wrote his name, was born in 1626; 
when about thirty-four years old he arrived in America with his wife, 
Catherine, nee Blanshan, whom he had married in Germany, and their 
two sons, who rejoiced in the patriarchal names, Abraham and Isaac. 
They settled at Kingston, N. Y., and Abraham was later one of the 

[1 89 j 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

patentees of New Paltz — or le nouveau palatinate — thus named after 
the Palatinate, Germany, the home of Abraham's mother. The du 
Bois' house at Kingston is still in possession of the family, and reunions 
have been held there. Louis was one of the founders of the church, 
and the record of its building is still preserved, written in French, 
which is not the pure tongue and undefiled, but, nevertheless, intel- 
ligible. "They needed a French teacher," is the comment of the his- 
torian of the time. Louis always went by the title of the Walloon. By 
occupation he was "a tiller of the soil" ; his brother Jacques was a silk 
manufacturer. 

Those were stirring times, and the du Bois family had its share 
of adventures, and thrilling escapades — very much so, indeed, for 
Louis' wife and children — there were three of them — were carried 
captives by Indians in the raid of 1663, an d were just about to be 
"butchered to make an Indian holiday," when Louis and his band of 
men rushed in upon the scene. The captives had saved their lives, in 
the first place, by singing songs. That "music hath charms to soothe 
the savage breast," was demonstrated in this case. The "Babylonish 
Captives" was the very appropriate song which Catherine and her 
children were singing at the moment of their rescue. 

Abraham's wife was Margaret Deyo, and one daughter, Mary, 
who married Philip Ferrie, or Verree, received as her wedding portion, 
1,000 acres of land in Lancaster county, Pa. Du Bois, a town in 
Pennsylvania, possibly is thus named for the pilgrim fathers. 

Jacques, who left three sons, lived but one year after reaching 
America. He settled at Esopus, New York. 

The Dubois family were always willing to help fight the battles 
of their country, and they always "face fire like grenadiers." Heit- 
man's "Officers of the Revolution" gives the names of Major Lewis, 
Lieutenants James and Henry, Captain David, all of the New York 
branch of the family, and Captain Isaac Dubose of South Carolina. 

Large families were the rule in the du Bois families in olden 
times — eleven children being quite a popular number ; seven and eight 
were the average number. And their names? Well, it must be con- 
fessed that our forefathers, or more likely it was our foremothers, 
showed a curious taste — or shall we venture to say lack of taste — in 
the selection. Can we imagine any maiden having grace enough to

freely forgive a parent who endowed her with the name Jacomynche 
(pronounced Yah-somine-chee) ? It is perhaps an improvement over 
Jemima, which it means, when done into English. Then we find the 
name Gerritje. She was one of the eleven, of whom one was Gerrit, 
and one Barent, and another Neeltje (Cornelia). The latter is not an 
unattractive name. 

The du Bois family has always been found battling on the side of 
patriotism, intelligence and religious freedom against ignorance and 
superstition. 

It has its authors, poets, men of science, statesmen and religious 
devotees. The first superior of the Sisters of Charity in the United 
States was Bishop John Dubois, born in Paris, 1764. He came to Vir- 
ginia in 1 79 1, and in building up the church there, did the work of 
three men. "He swam rivers, climbed mountain roads, cheered the 
woodman at his work, rode fifty miles in response to a sick call." 
Though born an aristocrat, he did not hesitate to share the roughest 
toils of his people; to assist in raising the rude log hut, and then to 
preside at the modest feast given in honor of the work. He was taught 
English by Patrick Henry. 

Jean Baptiste Dubois was an eminent author and member of the 
French Academy. Born in 1670, he prophesied in one of his books the 
revolt in the American colonies against Great Britain. 

The "chief man of France" was Guillaume Dubois, statesman, 
born 1656. It was he who succeeded in negotiating the Triple Alliance. 

The Dubois family has its story of "untold millions" awaiting 
heirs. Twoscore heirs, however, have claimed, and are now enjoying 
their share of the goods the gods have provided. Jacques du Bois, 
born in Belgium, 1704, left a fortune of 20,000,000 florins, or $9,000,- 
000. The interest was to be paid to an orphan asylum at Amsterdam, 
for fifty years. At the end of the time his legal heirs were to share 
his fortune. 

The arms illustrated, borne by Louis, the Kingston settler, are: 
Argent, a lion rampant, sable, armed and langued, gules. 

Crest: Between two tree stumps, vert, the lion of the shield (i. 
e., lion, rampant, sable.) 

Motto: Tiens ta foy — "Keep thy faith," or word. The lion, one 
of the oldest and most coveted of heraldic emblems, denotes deathless 
courage.

issued to Henry and John Funk. The land was then 
accounted as in the Township of Strasburg, in Ches- 
ter County, Pennsylvania, but was situated in what 
is now the city of Lancaster, in Lancaster County. 
S. M. Sener, in his "Lancaster Townstead" (Publications of the Lan- 
caster County Historical Society, Volume V, 1901, Page 122), says of 
the tract that it "embraced the southeastern portion of the town." 

I>i3l 




THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Ellis and Evans {History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 1883, 
Page 361) also state that this land was in the southeastern part of 
what is now the city of Lancaster, and that the district was then called 
"New Strasburge." Ellis and Evans refer to Henry Funk as "a 
Swiss Mennonite." Here follows a certified copy of the warrant of 
1 71 7 to Henry and John Funk as on file in the Department of Internal 
Affairs, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 

Three hundred and fifty acres of this tract were confirmed by 
patent to Henry Funk on 30 November, 171 7, and the remaining two 
hundred acres were patented to John Funk on the same date. Here 
follow certified copies of the separate patents, issued to Henry and 
John Funk, confirming the warrant of 171 7. These are recorded in 
the Department of Internal Affairs, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 
Patent Book A, Volume 6, Pages 156 and 155, respectively.

John Funk was undoubtedly related to Henry Funk, and may 
have been his son. He was evidently a much younger man than Henry 
Funk, for, as will be seen, he was living and transacting business, in 
Virginia, as late as 1754, while Henry's son, also named Henry, was 
old enough to have married children as early as 1736. It will be 
shown that Henry, Senior, had a son, John. John or Hans Funk was 
one of the first colonists of what is now Lancaster County. He came 
with a party of other Swiss Mennonites, who, on 10 October, 1710, 
had surveyed to them ten thousand acres of land on and about Pequea 
Creek. This land was proportioned as follows: 

To Martin Kendig, one thousand, seven hundred and ninety-four 
acres ; to Jacob Miller, one thousand, and eight acres ; to John Funk, 
five hundred and thirty acres ; to Hans Herr, five hundred and thirty 
acres; to Christian Herr, five hundred and thirty acres; to Wendall 
Bowman, five hundred and thirty acres; to John Rudolph Bundely, 
five hundred and thirty acres; to Christopher Franciscus, five hun- 
dred and thirty acres; to Martin Mylin, two hundred and sixty-four 
acres. {Publications of the Lancaster County Historical Society, 
Volume XIV, Number 2, 1910.) 

In the patents of 171 7 to Henry and John Funk, they are 
described as "late of the Palatinate of the Rhine in Germany." It is 
believed that the ancestral home of the Funk family, as well as of the 
other Lancaster County colonists of 1710, was the Canton of Zurich, 
in Switzerland; that they had gone thence to the Emmenthal, near 

[220! 



THE FUNK FAMILY 

Berne ; and that from Switzerland they had gone to London, to make 
arrangements with William Penn for emigrating to his Province of 
Pennsylvania. From London they sailed to Philadelphia and then 
went on to the Pequea. {Lancaster County Historical Society Publi- 
cations, Volume XIV, Number 2, 1910.) 

It is, however, possible, and, from their descriptions in the 1717 
patents, seems probable, — that Henry and John Funk, or their ances- 
tors, were among the many Swiss who, in the Seventeenth Century 
fled from Switzerland to the German Palatinate, where they were 
given a religious tolerance and liberty denied them by the Calvinists 
of their native land. 

Daniel K. Cassel {History of the Mennonites, Philadelphia, 1888, 
Page 290), says: "The first Lancaster County settlement of Men- 
nonites seems to have been composed of persons who had fled from 
the persecutions of the Swiss Cantons in the previous century, and 
remained for some time settled at various points on the Rhine, particu- 
larly in the Palatinate, the Elector of which at that time seemed kindly 
disposed." The same author (Ibid, Page 287), states that Martin 
Kendig, one of the first Lancaster County colonists, returned to 
Europe for the purpose of bringing over to Pennsylvania their fam- 
ilies, and, quoting the historian, Rupp, says. **** this company, con- 
sisting of the residue of some of those in America, and of **** 
Jacob Miller, **** Henry Funk, **** and others he returned to their 
new homes ****." 

The five hundred and thirty acres of land surveyed to John Funk 
in 1 710 were confirmed to him by patent on 30 June, 171 1. On 12 
April, 1754, he sold his land to John Brackbill. 

"This Indenture made the Twelfth Day of Aprill in the year of 
our Lord one thousand seven hundred and fifty four Between John 
Funk of the County of Frederick in the Province of Virginia Yeoman 
of the one part and John Breckbill of the County of Lancaster in the 
Province of Pennsilvania yeoman of the other part Where as William

John Funk also received a patent for two hundred and fifty acres, 
"3°> 3 ra * Month, 171 5." (Pennsylvania Archives, Second Series, 
Volume XIX, Page 600, Book H.) This land he, with his wife, Bar-

Returning to Henry Funk, we find that he died prior to 8 Octo- 
ber, 1735. Before his death he had desired to convey two hundred 
acres of his 171 7 patent to his son, Henry, and on 8 October, 1735, 
his other children, specified below, united in an agreement waiving 
their rights in this tract of two hundred acres. 

The name of Henry Funk's wife is not known. It is probable that 
she predeceased her husband, as her name does not appear in the 
aforesaid agreement of 1735. Their children were: 

1 Henry Funk, the oldest son, who will be treated hereafter. 

John Funk, who may have been John Funk, the Pequea colonist 

of 1 710, who removed to Virginia. 

Martin Funk, 

Jacob Funk, 

Samuel Funk, 

Barbara Funk, who was married to Michael Myer, or Moyer, by 

8 October, 1735. 

Mary Funk, who was married to Jacob Nutt by 8 October. 

1735. 

Frena Funk, who was married to Joseph Musser by 8 October, 

1735.

BY 

CATHERINE O'NEILL 

HE HISTORY of the American Colonies from their 
first feeble beginnings is full of interest to the sons 
and daughters of this great republic, in whom has 
been inculcated the spirit of freedom and patriotism. 
A renewed and vigorous enthusiasm was awakened 
in these descendants of hardy adventurers by the 
celebration on historic Hampton Roads of the birth of America, not 
only as a nation, but as the greatest of all republics, and a keen inter- 
est was aroused concerning everything pertaining to the Colonial and 
Revolutionary periods ; no effort has been spared to make memorable 
the date when the first permanent English settlement was begun in 
the new world. 

Our patriotic societies have been busily engaged for many years 
past in the noble work of marking historical spots, and restoring the 
homes of men who have made themselves immortal in song and story 
by their deeds of valor and heroism, for the enlightenment of future 
generations. _ 

The careers of those who were makers of history during the 
stirring events which followed the landing of the little band of home- 
sick travelers on Virginia soil, are now claiming the attention and 
admiration of the entire country, and their glorious achievements 
are receiving a tardy recognition by the erection of monuments and 
memorials. 

The noted men of these thrilling epochs are being brought into 
the limelight, and their patriotism and statesmenship pointed to with 
pardonable pride by their descendants. To these men of English line- 
age we owe much, for they have been the dominant spirit in the mak- 
ing of this fair land, and have given us not only our laws, our tradi- 
tions and our language, but also some of the most stirring chapters 
in American history, a national liberty and a romantic literature. 

[2331 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

It therefore seems a fitting moment for a tribute to two of our 
most distinguished literary patriots, Francis Hopkinson, Signer of 
the Declaration of Independence from New Jersey, and his son, Joseph 
Hopkinson, author of our national ballad, "Hail Columbia," a song 
that still lives in the hearts of the people, and breathes the same 
patriotic sentiment that aroused the enthusiasm of our ancestors more 
than a hundred years ago. The unusual talents, attainments and 
inventive genius of these two gifted sons of America have been trans- 
mitted in a truly remarkable degree from father to son through many 
generations of the Hopkinson family. 

Before passing on however, to our two literary patriots, a short 
sketch of the father of Francis Hopkinson, progenitor of the sturdy 
Americans whose careers will be traced on these pages, may not be 
out of place. 

THOMAS HOPKINSON, FRIEND OF BENJAMIN 

FRANKLIN 

Thomas Hopkinson was a man of literary ability, a highly edu- 
cated scholar, and a determined opponent of any infringement of the 
rights of the colonies. A pioneer in the electrical field, he was an 
intimate friend of Benjamin Franklin, often assisting the latter in his 
scientific researches. It is said that he performed the first experi- 
ment which proved that the electric fluid may be drawn from a body 
charged with it by means of a pointed instrument. Indeed, Dr. Frank- 
lin confessed that, "The power of point to throw off the electric fire 
was first communicated to me by my ingenius friend, Mr. Thomas 
Hopkinson/' Thus 

"How often the spirits of great events stride on before the events. 
And in Today already walks Tomorrow." 

PATRIOT, POET, PAINTER AND AUTHOR. 

Francis Hopkinson, grandson of the Bishop of Worcestor ; was 
born in Philadelphia in 1738, and was the first pupil who entered the 
College of Philadelphia, now the University of Pennsylvania, at its 
opening. After graduating in law, he married, upon returning from a 

[234! 



FRANCIS HOPKINSON 

trip to England, Ann Borden, a very accomplished woman, whose 
father was the founder of Bordentown, New Jersey, his grant of land 
from the Crown extending from Bordentown to what is now Staun- 
ton, Virginia. 

Francis was a most ardent and intelligent supporter of the war 
for Independence, and was a distinguished statesman and jurist. 
After remaining in Congress long enough to make his name immor- 
tal, he entered upon a judicial career which continued until his death 
in 1791. 

The author of many remarkable books, he was also skilled in 
music and painting, a composer of music for his own songs, and a 
poet of no ordinary ability. It is probable that he was the first com- 
poser of American music. (See O. G. Sonnecks, "Francis Hopkins 
and James Lyon," published in Washington for the author, who is 
assistant in the Congressional Library, and possibly knows more 
about our early music and musicians than any living authority.) 
Francis was a patron and friend of musicians and painters, and it was 
he who wrote a letter to George Washington in the spring of 1785, 
recommending an English portrait painter, Robert Edge Pine, who 
was at that time in Philadelphia, and who afterward went to Mount 
Vernon and painted Washington's portrait. A copy of this letter, 
worn and yellow with age, is now before the writer. A strong friend- 
ship existed between Hopkinson and the "Father of His Country," a 
friendship that extended also to their wives, and much correspond- 
ence passed between them. 

In 1774, when matters between England and the colonies began 
to assume a threatening aspect, Mr. Hopkinson wrote "A Pretty 
Story," very wittily describing the pretensions of the Mother Coun- 
try, which was much enjoyed by those who were opponents of Eng- 
land's Colonial policy. Francis Hopkinson was appointed a delegate 
from New Jersey to the Congress of the United Colonies, and signed 
his name to the Declaration of Independence. In 1778 he wrote a 
satirical poem, "The Battle of the Kegs," which described a futile 
attempt by the patriots of Bordentown to destroy the British vessels 
at Philadelphia by filling kegs with powder and floating them down 
the Delaware River. Though unsuccessful, the enemy was consider- 
ably alarmed. A few verses of the poem run as follows : 



[2351 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

"Gallants attend and hear a friend 
Trill forth harmonious ditty; 
Strange thing I'll tell which late befell 
In Philadelphia City. 

'Twas early, as the poets say, 
Just as the sun was rising, 
A soldier stood on a log of wood, 
And saw a thing surprising. 

As in amaze he stood to gaze, 
The truth can't be denied, sir, 
He spied a score of kegs or more, 
Come floating down the tide, sir. 

A sailor, too, in jerkin blue, 
This strange appearance viewing, 
First damned his eyes, in great surprise, 
Then said, 'Some mischief's brewing'. 

These kegs, I'm told, the rebels hold 
Packed up like pickled herring, 
And they've come down to attack the town 
In this new way of ferrying. 

The soldier flew, the sailor too, 
And scared almost to death, sir, 
Wore out their shoes to spread the news, 
And ran till out of breath, sir." 

Francis Hopkinson was one of the delegates to the Convention 
in Philadelphia in 1787, assembled to provide a form of government 
for the new States, and was also made United States Judge for the 
District of Pennsylvania by Washington. He died May 9, 1791, full 
of honors, having builded a lofty monument to his fame and his 
patriotism, and left it a noble heritage to posterity, 

"After high deeds, not left untold 
In the stern warfare which of old 
'Twas his to share, 

[236] 



FRANCIS HOPKINSON 

These are the records, half effaced, 

Which, with the hand of youth he traced, 

On history's page; 

But with fresh victories he drew 

Each fading character anew, 

In his old age." 

AUTHOR OF "HAIL COLUMBIA" 

This scion of the Hopkinsons possessed a poetical soul as well as 
a legal mind. Joseph Hopkinson, son of Francis Hopkinson and Ann 
Borden, was born in Philadelphia, November 12, 1770. He attained 
great eminence in the profession of law, and w r as a member of Con- 
gress in 18 14. Joseph Bonaparte, King of Naples and Spain, was an 
intimate friend of Judge Hopkinson when the former lived at Bor- 
dentown, after his flight from France. Hopkinson took a prominent 
part in the Convention which revised the Constitution of Pennsyl- 
vania, and was appointed United States Judge in 1828. 

It is not generally known that Judge Hopkinson was the author 
of "Hail Columbia." The circumstances are these — Fox, the trage- 
dian, was to have a "Benefit" and requested his friend to write a 
song for the occasion. The song "Hail Columbia" was composed one 
morning before breakfast in the State House in Philadelphia. Im- 
mediately after breakfast the words were written out by Judge Hop- 
kinson, and at his request they were set to the music of a popular air 
known as "The President's March," by the wife of the author, who 
was an accomplished musician. The song was first sung at Fox's 
"Benefit," and from the first was received with great favor and 
enthusiasm, soon becoming very popular throughout the country — a 
popularity which it has retained despite the many patriotic songs in 
existence until the present time. When it w T as written in 1798, Con- 
gress was in the throes of a debate concerning the attitude the United 
States should assume in the conflict between France and England, and 
party feeling was very intense. After a long life spent in the service 
of his country, Joseph Hopkinson died, January 15, 1842. 

AN AESCULAPIUS IN A WORK-SHOP. 

William Gilmor Smith, great-grandson of Francis Hopkinson, 
the Signer, was a noted physician and surgeon. He was a Virginian 

[237] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

and married Elizabeth Upshur Bowdoin, a direct descendant of Pierre 
Baudouin of La Rochelle, France, whose son fled to this country to 
escape religious persecution after the Revocation of the "Edict of 
Nantes." Dr. Smith inherited much of the inventive ingenuity of his 
ancestors, Thomas, Francis, and Joseph Hopkinson. With him it 
took the form of mechanical skill, for he was an adept in the use of 
tools and machinery of all kinds. He daily sought relaxation from 
the arduous duties of his profession in his workshop, which he had 
caused to be built on the lawn of "Ingleside,"* his residence. There 
he spent many happy hours in fashioning articles of most delicate 
workmanship, many pieces of his handiwork being now in the posses- 
sion of his children and grandchildren. 

Dr. Smith was a man of strong religious conviction, and was 
active all his life in upbuilding and maintaining the Protestant 
Episcopal Church. Born in 1801, he passed away in 1876, one hun- 
dred years after the birth of the American Republic. 

INVENTOR OF THE HARMONICON 

Francis Hopkinson Smith also inherited to a wonderful extent 
the genius of his great-grandfather. He was an inventor, and ac- 
cumulated a fortune through his inventions, one of which was a 
musical instrument called an harmonicon. The invention consists of 
a wooden sounding board fitted with glass globes. The tone is pro- 
duced by passing the tips of the dampened fingers over the edges of 
the glasses, producing an exquisite musical sound. Several of the 
instruments are in the possession of various branches of the family. 
The one used personally by the inventor he presented to his niece, 
whom he had taught to perform on the harmonicon, and it is today 
in an excellent state of preservation. 

The musical discovery happened in this way: Seated one day 
at his brother's dinner table, when the finger bowls were brought on, 
Mr. Smith, in a moment of distraction, passed the tips of his wet fin- 
gers over the edge of the delicate glass vessel before him; it at once 
produced a musical note. "Ha!" exclaimed Mr. Smith, "there is 
music in this glass!" and his ingenius brain began at once to evolve 
the process which resulted in the harmonicon. One of these instru- 

*Ingleside is the old Smith homestead in Eastville, Va.

FRANCIS HOPKINSON 

ments is now in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, bearing no 
card indicating the name of the inventor. Mr. Smith made only six 
of these instruments and died without imparting the secret of his 
method to any one. It is known however, that hundreds of glasses 
were sometimes cast before the exact note he sought was produced. 
He perfected an immense instrument for a church in Baltimore but 
there was not sufficient volume of sound to make it a success. 

Francis Hopkinson Smith also possessed the gift of mesmerism 
or hypnotism, extensively used now by medical men, who affirm that 
many diseases of body and mind can be cured by mental suggestion. 

F. HOPKINSON SMITH, A MAN OF COMPLEX 
PERSONALITY 

And so we have traced through many generations from the latter 
part of the 17th Century, until we have arrived at the beginning of 
the 20th Century, and here we find representing the seventh genera- 
tion from Thomas Hopkinson, a notable figure, F. Hopkinson Smith, 
author, artist, engineer — a man of complex personality. 

In this distinguished representative of a remarkable family ap- 
peared to be combined the varied forms of genius prominent in his 
ancestors. Mr. Smith's career is too well known to require more 
than a cursory touch of the pen. The son of Francis Hopkinson 
Smith and Susan Teackle, much of his early life was spent among his 
kinspeople in Virginia. He settled in New York and married Miss 
Josephine Vandeventer. 

As an author he has given to the world of fiction many of the 
most readable books of the day, covering a wide range in the fields of 
romance, travel and adventure. His style is singularly concise, com- 
pact and realistic. In character drawing he excels and his books are 
filled with a tender, old fashioned sentiment, full of warmth and life 
and charm very refreshing in these days, and holding the reader's 
interest to the close. He is especially happy in portraying characters 
of noble womanhood, and it would be difficult to find three finer 
feminine types than Margaret Grant, Sally Horn and Jane Cobden. 
Mr. Smith was a versatile painter, an entertaining lecturer, and a 
civil engineer of note. 

Thus we see in the histories of these six men a striking instance 
of the heredity of literary and legal ability, as well as of inventive 

[239] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

genius and patriotism. Needless to say they have left the impress of a 
robust and intense personality upon the thousands with whom they 
have come in contact, and when the roll call of past centuries is 
sounded, few will be found to have a fairer record than our two 
literary patriots, Francis and Joseph Hopkinson, who not only helped 
to make the laws of their country, but the songs of a nation. 

"Green be the graves where sleep the warriors, patriots and sages! 
Calm be the resting place of all the brave and true !"

ADELINE E. GROSS 

ROM an old deed of estate conveyance found in the 
archives of the Island Church of Barf leur, Normandy, 
A. D. 1840, by John Manion, a distinguished Notary 
of Cherbourg, Normandy, we learn that a family of 
noted "Sea Kings," of Elsinore, Norway, A. D. 912. 
named "Vidarvarde," equipped 10 ships for the ser- 
vice of Rollo, First Duke of Normandy ; that for gallant sea service to 
said prince on the Norman Coast, "Rurick Vidarvarde," head of said 
family, was granted the Demense of Chase, De La Montague. Val De 
Saar, Normandy, where the family lived in opulence and high respect 
up to the Norman invasion of England. 

The above named John Manion, Notary of Cherbourg, Nor- 
mandy, copied the above extract record of the Woodward Family, 
compliant to request of the Lord Edgecomb, of Mount Edgecomb 
Park, near Plymouth, Devon, said nobleman's ancestors having served 
in the Warwick Yeoman Horse with the troops, in which a gallant 
captain, Nathan Woodward, was standard bearer, and which captain 
was the founder of the "Standish Hall" branch, settled in the old 
province of Massachusetts, A. D. 1642. 

The family Manion, the head of which found the earliest history 
of the Woodward Family, are residents at this day on the Quay 
Royale, Cherbourg, Normandy. 

The name of this ancient Anglo Norman Family up to the year 
1066, was spelled Du Boisgarde "Temps Conquestories," (Time of the 
Conquest) having been translated from the Norse spelling to Nor- 
man French. We learn from the research of John Thorpe, an author- 
itative herald, of Duddeston Manor, Warwickshire, that a Knight and 
Armiger of said family, passed over to England in the Garde du 

[241] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Corps of William the Conqueror; that for valorous service at the; 
battle of Hastings the two gentlemen at arms, namely, Guilliamme and 
Richard Du Boisgarde, were chartered under Royal Seal of the Con- 
queror William, the first, to the manors at Shoevington and Standish, 
County of Lancaster ; and that in the deed of conveyance thereof they 
had their name, Du Boisgarde, anglicised to Woodward, such being 
a literal translation. They had the honor of having their names 
enrolled among those of the 648 knights whose names were preserved 
on the tapestry hung by William the Conqueror in Battle-Abbey, 
which he built to commemorate the Battle of Hastings. 

In the Doomsday book, or census taken by the Conqueror, it was 
anglicized, at first with the spelling Wadward and Wadwad and 
finally became Woodward, the literal signification of the name. 

We learn also from the same records, found by the herald, John 
Thorpe, in the Archives of Aston Hall, Warwickshire, that a branch 
of this family, Ambrose Woodward, Armiger, settled at Barbeacon 
Manor, near the ancient Borough of Birmingham, Warwickshire, in 
the time of Henry the Eighth, recorded at Standish Hall, County 
of Lancaster, by Government officers, under commission called "Her- 
ald Visitation," attested at Herald's office, Tower London, in the year 
1520. This family held official positions in the "Magistracy" and the 
Courte Elite of the County of Warwick, up to the reign of Charles 
the First, when in 1630, joining the Nonconformists, opposed to the 
arbitrary dictum of the Episcopacy, two of this family, Samuel and 
Nathaniel Woodward, were cited by a bench of Bishops to the Hall of 
the Lord De Bermingham to make oath that they keep their puritan 
teaching within their own family and house, at home. Against the 
bond so dictated, these intrepid Woodwards defiantly demurred, 
averring that rather than submit to the "Arbitrary" dictum of an 
intolerant un-English Court, they would leave their dear old England 
f orevermore. Being heavily mulcted for contumacy of Eclesia Court, 
accompanied by two resolute yeomen, one Henry Satterlee and the 
other, Richard Sumner, they embarked at the port of Whitehaven, 
bound to the "well beloved colony" of Massachusetts. Soon after the 
settlement of these gentlemen in Massachusetts Province, near Rox- 
bury, Township of Boston, the Grand Jury of the County, at the 
instance of the Lord De Bradford, of Castle Bromwich, near Birm- 
ingham, ordered a remittance of the fine, imposed for contemptuous 

[242] 



THE WOODWARD FAMILY 

resistance to the Warwickshire Episcopal Court, and also severely 
censured said court for its arbitrary procedure. The Grand Jury also 
called upon the Government of Charles the First, to grant lands in the 
province of Massachusetts to the brothers, Nathaniel and Samuel 
Woodward, now free denizens of that noble province. 

In England there remain seven branches of said family, estated 
gentlefolk, and also branches of the same settled in the province of 
Massachusetts, upon Royal Grants in Township of Roxboro, in the 
year 1642. 

Richard Woodward, in the year 1415, at the Battle of Agincourt, 
so notably distinguished himself for great tactical skill and valor, as 
to call forth the King's heartfelt thanks in a speech before the army at 
Windsor. At the close of the campaign, his majesty presented the 
gallant Knight with a shield of gold, bearing the family arms, but 
with a new motto, namely, Suave et Brave, "Gentle and brave." The 
crest also on this shield was changed from the old "Greyhound 
Sejant," to a coronet mounted by a greyhound, — the coronet in Her- 
aldry signifying the "Soul of honor," the greyhound, sign of alert- 
ness, vigilance and fidelity, and the ermine in the upper quarter of the 
coat, sign of purity in the Magistracy. The seven different families 
of Woodward, in England have different crests and mottoes. 

By a valuable paper found in an old government office at Boston 
and forwarded to Anthony Barclay, British Consul General of Con- 
sulate, Barclay street, New York, it was proven that the old Lancaster 
County family, of Shcevington and Standish, said county, were closely 
related to the Woodwards of Edgebastion, Birmingham, of whom 
the Woodwards of Roxbury, Massachusetts, are lineal descendants. 

This old manuscript, sent by Anthony Barclay, Her Britanic 
Majesty's Consul General of Consulate, Barclay Street, New York, to 
the care of the Archives of Aston Hall, was, by James Watt, Lord of 
Aston Manor, deposited in the Archives of the old Borough Library 
of Birmingham, Warwickshire, in 1840, where the experts of said 
institution found an old historical paper of the Woodward family, 
bearing the seal of Sir Lister Holt, old time Lord of Aston Manor. 
This paper, found by John Thorpe — Herald and officer of Warwick, 
Yeoman Cavalry — proved an exact indentured duplicate of the Wood- 
ward paper sent from the British Consulate, New York. Letters were 
also found at Castle Bromwich Hall to Lord De Bradford, written by 

[243! 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

one Nathan Woodward, in 1644, bearing post stamp of Roxboro 
office, Massachusetts, which letters were addressed to Lord De Brad- 
ford and Lord Dudley, old time friends of the Woodwards, who felt 
a deep interest in the welfare and prosperity of that old, honored and 
gallant family. At the battle of Edgehill, Warwickshire, one Nathan- 
iel Woodward was standard bearer to the Warwick County Horse, 
which standard bore the motto of the Standish family, of Standish 
Hall, Lancashire — namely — "vire libes et moriar" — A freeman I 
have lived, and will to die a freeman. One Nathan Standish was drill- 
master of the said Regiment in 1644, settled upon Crown Demesne, 
near Barnstable, Province of Massachusetts. This Standish was 
cousin to the Woodwards of Barbeacon Downs, near the Borough of 
Birmingham, Warwickshire. 

The worthy Yeoman Family of John Thorpe, who found the 
Woodward letters at Castle Bromwich Hall, and the old family 
records at Aston Hall, Warwickshire, are still residents of Duddeston 
Manor, near Belmont Chapel, Suburb of Ashtead, Warwickshire, and, 
from their notes and dictation the above outline sketch is written. 
These notes were after examined, attested, signed and sealed by 
James Fenwick, Rector of old Crusader's Church, Aston Manor, War- 
wickshire. This church was built by the Woodwards in the time of 
Richard the First. 

The first of the Woodwards, emigrants from their home — old 
"Boston," Suffolk, England — in 1640, to Massachusetts province, 
near Roxbury, township of Boston, of whom we have record, were. 
Nathaniel and Ezekiel (or Samuel.) 

In 1642 there likewise settled near Barnstable, Massachusetts, 
near relatives of these Woodwards, of the "Standish Hall" branch, 
descended from the Standish family, Lancaster, England. The name 
Ezekiel, seems to have been confused with that of Samuel, and there 
is reason to think both names belonged to one person. There also 
came over to America with these Woodwards, a brother's wife, Mary. 

Second Ezekiel Woodward, of Boston, (presumably a son of 
either Nathaniel or Samuel Ezekiel, most probably of the latter,) by 
wife Ann, daughter of William Beamsley, had nine children, five of 
whom were born in Boston. 

He bought a house and lot in Ipswich in 1661, and took oath of 
allegiance there in 1678. His last four children were born in Ipswich. 

[244]

His second wife was Sarah, widow of John Solart, of Wenham. The 
names of the children are :

Motto : Faith Conquers, Truth Retains. 

HE WHITAKERS were of Saxon origin and are 
traceable to their ancient family seat in Warwick- 
shire, England, upon a tract called Whiteacre or 
Whitacre in Doomsday Book (A. D. 1086.) A part 
of this tract is still so designated. It was "enfeoffed" 
to the ancestors of Simon de Whitacre, Knight of 
the reign of Henry I (A. D. 11 00-1135.) The chiefs of the family, 
Knights and barons, were many times called to the King's Council 
under the first three Edwards and Richard II, a period of nearly one 
hundred years. 

Since feudal times, when their men of mark were soldiers, the 
Whitakers have achieved distinction as scholars, historians, divines, 
jurists and physicians. 

Reverend William Whitaker was a learned divine of Trinity 
College, in Cambridge, and Master of St. John's College there. He 
wrote many learned books against the English priests, Stapleton, 
Sanders, Reignolds, Campion and especially Robert Bellarmine. He 
lived a godly life and died peacefully, in 1595. A portrait of him 
hangs in St. John's College, Cambridge, England. Doctor Whitaker 
was presented by the queen, to the Chancellorship of St. Paul's, Lon- 
don, October 1, 1580. He resigned this preferment in 1587. Bellar- 
mine said he was the most learned antagonist that he had ever read. 

Dr. Lobiar Whitaker, physician in ordinary to Charles II, seems 
to have had as utter a dislike to unpalatable medicines as the most 
squeamish of his patients. He was a friend to the vintner and wrote 
a book upon "The Tree of Human Life, or the Blood of the Grape,"

proving the possibility of maintaining life from infancy to old age 
without sickness by the use of wine. (London, 1638.) 

Several of this family were proprietors of large landed estates. 
Daniel Whitaker, d. 1649, was Alderman and twice Mayor of Don- 
caster. Sir Edward,, Whitaker, Knight, was Lieutenant of the Swal- 
low, in 1688, Commander of the Dover, in 1690, Rear Admiral of the 
Blue, in 1705 and Rear Admiral of the Red in 1708. He was Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean in 1709-10. 

Samuel Whitaker, brother of Sir Edward, was Second Lieuten- 
ant of the Essex, in 1692; Commander of the Lark, in 1695; Captain 
of the Nottingham at capture of Malaga, in 1704; Flag Captain to 
Sir Cloudesley Shovel, then of H. M. S. Association, and was drowned 
with that Admiral on the rocks of Sicily, in 1707. 

Thomas Dunham Whitaker, LL. D., F. S. A., was a well known 
antiquary and local historian, vicar of Whalley, Minister of Holme 
and J. P. for County Lancaster and West Riding of York. (Died, 
1821.) 

Nathaniel Whitaker, Princeton College, D. D., from St. Andrew's 
University, England, was son of Jonathan Whitaker, who came to 
this country in 1724. He raised £1,100 in England for the founding 
of Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire. He was Presby- 
terian pastor in Salem, Massachusetts, fifteen years, including the 
period of the Revolutionary War. 

A critic had heard both him and the celebrated George White- 
field. When asked as to the relative merits of the two men, he replied : 
"Dr. Whitaker is a very great man, but it will take a great many 
Whiteacres to make one Whitefield." He died in 1795. His por 
trait is in the library of Dartmouth College. Others of this cele- 
brated family have distinction and led useful lives.

FIRST GENERATION 

Lip^SH!^ f HE SAVELL family probably came from either York- 
a3|| shire or from Devonshire although none of the 
JS//I records relating to the Americans bearing the name 
|0 make this point clear. We must judge from the 
r/& general information given about the family in Eng- 
§§3i land. There the name appears in the preferred 
modern form, Saville. They are said to have been one of the most 
illustrious families of the East Riding of Yorkshire. In this section 
they have been known since the twelfth century. During the thir- 
teenth century they are said to have flourished especially. In origin 
the name is undoubtedly Norman Lower, "Dictionary of Family 
Names," page 304.) The name also appears among the county fam- 
ilies of Devon (Burke, "Dictionary of the Landed Gentry," Volume 
2, page 1 193-4). The arms are described as "arg. on a bend, sa., 
cotised, gu., three vols, of the first all within a bordure, engrailed, of 
the third." The crest is described as "an eagle rising, per bend, sin- 
ister, or and sa., holding in the beak a fleur-de-lis, az." The motto is 
given, "Nil conscrire sibi." The seat of the family at present is Oak- 
lands, Devon (ibid.) 

Various spellings of the name appear. Among them are : Saval, 
Savalls, Savel, Savell, Savells, Savels, Savil, Savile, Savill, Saville, 
Savyle (Lower, "English Surnames," page 304). In the colonial 
records the forms Savil, Savill, and Savells are the forms of the 
name that appear most frequently. In this account the form Savell 
has been used, since it occurs more regularly in the records than any 
other.

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

The family of Savell treated in the present study has as its 
common ancestor in this country, William Savell of Braintree. 
Massachusetts. He was probably born in England, although when 
or where has not been ascertained. 

Braintree was the only settlement at Mount Wollaston, the name 
first given to the general locality. Its confines are described as 
follows : "Mount Wollaston is to be bounded by the Blew Hills and 
the rest is to be to Dorchester to go to the bounds of Plymouth" 
("Records of Colony of Massachusetts Bay in New England/' 
record and marginal note, page 217.) Mount Wollaston was incor- 
porated in 1640 as the town of Braintree (ibid.) The name of 
William Savell appears in the early records of Braintree, as well as 
those of his descendants. Hence we assume that this is the beginning 
of the history of this family in America. 

It seems that William Savell followed the trade of joiner. There 
is a brief mention of his coming to Cambridge to do some work for 
Nathaniel Eaton in 1641, as well as a statement of his subsequent 
removal to Braintree (Pope, "Pioneers of Massachusetts," page 401.) 
This is the earliest record found up to date. 

William Savell married first Hanna or Hannah. She died 
probably in 1653 or I 654. His second wife was Sarah Gannitt. They 
were married in Braintree, July, 1655, by Major Atharton of Dorches- 
ter ("Braintree Records," page 387, and also "New England Historic 
and Genealogical Register," Volume 12, page 374). Her name is also 
given as Jarmill. Her second husband was Thomas Faxson, to whom 
she was married September 5, 1670, by Mr. Tynge ("New England 
Historic and Genealogical Register," Volume 37, "Braintree Records," 
page 347.) Her will is dated August 13, 1694; it was proved No- 
vember 25, 1697 ; and recorded in the Suffolk Probate Records 1 1 1373. 
In this will occurs the name of one of her daughters-in-law, "Lydia 
Savel, wife of Benjamin of Brantrey" ("Vinton Genealogy," page 

298.) 

William Savell died in Braintree, February, 1669 ("Braintree 
Records"). His will is a document of much interest. It is as follows: 

William Savel, senr, will, 19 Feb. 1668-9. Wife Sarah, house 
and half the orchard during life. Son Benjamin, heir of house, may 
give her twenty shillings towards hiring a cleamber where she may 
please, and if she live in town, sons John, Samuel, and Benjamin shall 

[2641

provide four loads of yearly, also three fat swine, eighty weight, 
twenty bushels corn, all this if she bear his name. Her land in Bridge- 
water to be hers. 

Son John to have house and barn, shop and tools pertaining to 
his trade, also three acres of land that was brother Bass. 

Sons Samuel, Benjamin and William to have farm land equally; 
three eldest shall pay remainder of debt on Salter farm equally John 
and Benjamin shall have equal share of stock, and land in Bridge- 
water, and Quinipange, — and pay there from their sisters' portions. 

Daughters Hannah, land and money; daughter Sarah, when 
twenty-one ; other bequests of land to sons. 

Son John and brother Samuel Bass to be executors. Son Wil- 
liam to be apprenticed with John. Edward Bass and Edward Quinsey 
witnesses. Thomas Faxon, sen., and William Needham overseers 
("New England History and Genealogy Register," Volume 48. page 
323, "Suffolk Probate Records," Volume IV, page 36.) 

The following are "articles of Agreement" made between the 
sons named in this will and the widow, Sarah : 

1. She being dissatisfied, they agree she shall have her whole 
estate she brought their father for her whole use. 

2. Instead twenty bushels of corn, they engaged to pay three 
bushels wheat, three of rye, six of malt, eight of Indian. 

3. If she marry, to have four pounds yearly, twenty shillings in 
park three pounds in corn, for which she promises to be satisfied. 
14 June, 1668 (ibid.) 

The children of William Savell were all born in Braintree. The 
names are as follows : 

1 John, born April 22, 1642 ("Braintree Records," Volume 37, 
page 346.) Married Mehitable Hands, August 20, 1668 (ibid.) 
They had (1) John, born October 28, 1679, ( 2 ) Mehitable, 
married February 12, 1701, John Metcalf of Dedham (ibid. 
Volume 38, page 262.) The will of John Savell appears in the 
Suffolk Probate, 8:29 ("Vinton Genealogy," page 22^.) 
11 Samuel, born October 30, 1643 ("New England Historic and 
Genealogical Register," Volume 12, page no), married Hannah 
Adams, the eldest daughter of Joseph and Abigail Adams, born 
November 13, 1653 ("Vinton Genealogy" page 298). They had:

THE SECOND GENERATION 

William Savell, the fourth son and youngest child of William 
Savell and his wife, Hannah, was born in Braintree, June 17, 1650, 
("Braintree Secord," page 633.) The name of William Savell ap- 
pears in list of soldiers and volunteers from Roxbury, Dorchester, and 
Braintree, under Captain Johnson in the Narragansett campaign. 
June 25, 1675. It is safe to assume that this is the same person that 
appears in this genealogy ("Bodge," Soldiers of King Philip's War," 
1670-77, page 162.) 

He married first Deborah Faxon, January 4, 1679. The cere- 
mony was performed by Joseph Dudley ("Braintree Record," Volume 
37; "New England Historic and Genealogical Register," page 348.) 
He married the second time, Experience. His will bears the date Janu- 
ary 31, 1 699- 1 700. In it mention is made of Experience, his wife, his 
eldest son, William, and his sons, Joseph and Benjamin, and his daugh- 
ters, Hannah and Judith. It is recorded in the Suffolk Probate 
14:142 ("Vinton Genealogy," page 311.) William died in Braintree, 
February 1, 1700, ("Braintree Records," page 695.) 

[266] 



THE SAVELL FAMILY 

The children of William Savell were all born in Braintree. Their 
names were as follows : 

i William, born February, 1680 ("Braintree Record," "New Eng- 
land Historic and Genealogical Register," Volume 39, page 

264.) 

11 Deborah, baptised August 26, 1684, (ibid, Volume 50, page 

156), died March 6, 1700 (ibid, page 89.) 
in Joseph, baptised February 17, 1687, (ibid, page 269.) 
iv Benjamin, born October 20, 1692, ("Braintree Record," page 

668.) 
v Hannah, 
vi Judith. 

THIRD GENERATION 

Benjamin Savell, the third son and fourth child of William Savell 
and Deborah (Faxon) Savell was born in Braintree, October 20, 
1692. He married Mary Bridge of Roxbury in January, 1716, 
("Report Record Commission, Boston, Boston Marriages 1700-1751, 
Out-of-town Marriages from Court Record, City Document No. 
150.") This marriage is difficult to fix chiefly because it was not 
recorded either in Roxbury or in Braintree, or in Stoughton where 
Benjamin Savell and Mary Savell lived later. In the Vital Records of 
Stoughton, now Sharon, there are full records concerning the children 
born to Benjamin and Mary Savell from 1726 to 1738. It seems most 
probable that they moved to Stoughton between the years 17 16 and 
1725, since the latter date is also the date of the birth of the first child 
of this marriage in Stoughton. Whether children were born to them 
during the years 1716 to 1725 no records show. Among the children 
born to them in Stoughton appears the name of Edward Bridge 
("Stoughton Records," page 43.) This is another reason for assum- 
ing this view. Mary Bridge was a descendant of Edward Bridge of 
Roxbury, one of the first settlers in Massachusetts Bay Colony. His 
name appears in the earliest known list of the inhabitants of any 
Massachusetts town, ("Boston Record," Volume 34, "Town of Rox- 
bury".) The full name, Edward Bridge, would scarcely have been 
given to any child in the female line at least five generations later 
unless that child were a direct descendant of the first ancestor of that 
name. Moreover, acquaintance with the early colonial records of 

[267] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

birth and baptism shows that it was not usual to give children two 
Christian names. This may seem slight, but it is significant. 

It seems quite probable, judging from the records, slight as they 
are, that Mary (Bridge) Savell was in the fourth generation of the 
Bridge Family. Therefore this child, Edward Bridge Savell, would 
be of the fifth generation on the mother's side. The genealogy of 
the descendants of Edward Bridge of Roxbury has not been worked 
out. We know that he is first heard of in Roxbury in 1639; that his 
wife was Mary; that the names of his younger children are not 
recorded. He was brother or a cousin of John Bridge, of Cambridge, 
also of the Braintree Company. This seems clear upon examination 
of the Bridge Genealogy, compiled by William Bridge, Boston, 1884. 
This work contains no records whatever of the descendants of Edward 
Bridge; it is a history of the family of John Bridge, mentioned above. 
The conclusion that this was the fifth generation of the family is 
based upon what may be gathered from Savage (in his "Genealogical 
Dictionary of New England/' Volume I, pages 247-248.) 

The names of Benjamin and Mary Savell appear in the church 
records of Stoughton in 1740 (Cooke, "Origins and History of the. 
First Parish of Sharon," page 6.) There is also a record of the sale 
of pews in this church at about the same time. "Deacon Benjamin 
Savell purchased one at the right of the pulpit for the sum of ten 
pounds." (ibid, page 12.) 

The date of the death of Benjamin Savell has not been fixed. His 
children's names were as follows : 

1 Sarah, born in Stoughton, July 29, 1725; died September 3, 

1725 ("Stoughton Records," page 47.) 
11 Sarah, born October 12, 1726 (ibid, page 20.) 
in " of Benj. &m.... Savel was born.... 1728." (ibid. 

page 3-) 
iv Hannah, born March 26, 1731 (ibid, page 15.) 

v Edward Bridge, born January 8, 1733-4, (ibid, page 5.) 
vi William, born March 4, 1737 (ibid page 6.) 
vii Abigail, born June 25, 1738 (ibid page 15), married in 
Stoughton, November 17, 1757, Zebulon Holmes of Stoughton.

RADFORD is a name derived from the Saxon word, 
bradenford, meaning broad ford, and is an ancient 
name. 

It belongs to the class called local surnames. That 
is, some individual, at some time, resided at some 
broad ford of some stream. In due time he was called 
by the name of that locality, Broad Ford, which, in time, became 
Bradford. 

Other forms of the name, appearing in ancient records, are 
Bradfurth, Bradfourth and Bretfoort. 

There is a town in Wiltshire, on the Avon, called Bradford, and 
another in Yorkshire. 

Governor Bradford, of Mayflower fame, was from Yorkshire, 
the town of Austerfield, and his home there is still in good repair. 
About two miles distant is the cottage of Elder William Brewster, 
another famous pioneer. The two houses are at present on the market, 
or such was the case, and offered for less than $2,000. It is hoped 
that they will be purchased and kept as memorials. 

William Bradford was "father to all the colonies of New Eng- 
land, father of American history and progenitor of more than 50,000 
American people." His history of the colony, so long missing, is now 
the only authority for many transactions of the Pilgrims. As he 
lived the history of the times, he wrote it. 

All the councils of the colony were held at his house, at the top of 
Burial Hill, and each Sunday the company of worshippers, who 
assembled there, marched in procession up the steep ascent to the fort 
at its top, where religious services were held. 

When the Crown of England gave this colony of Plymouth a 
patent for land, the paper was drawn in the name of William Brad- 
ford and his heirs, which gave him the ownership of the whole, but 
he generously surrendered it into the hands of the company. 

He was a weaver, or fustian worker. The banns of marriage, 
published at Leyden, Holland, between himself and Dorothea, or

BRADFORD FAMILY 

Dorothy May, are dated November 15, 1613; in it, his name appears as 
William Bretfoort. His wife never touched foot to Plymouth soil, 
for she was accidentally drowned December 7, 1620, in Cape Cod 
Harbor. The story has it, that she fell overboard. Her death is the 
first recorded in the history of New England. 

The Governor's second wife was a widow, Mrs. Alice Carpenter 
Southworth. 

The inventory of the Governor's estate makes cheerful reading, 
if it may be so expressed. We think of our Mayflower ancestors liv- 
ing lives of Spartan simplicity in homes where furniture, to say noth- 
ing of luxuries, was conspicuous by its absence ; but the Governor had 
not only "linnin" and silver spoons and brasses and pewter, and carved 
"chaires," and three striped carpets, ten "cushens," three old 
"cushens," but cows and sheep and horses and clothes. Yes, certainly 
clothes enough for a gay cavalier. He must have been the Beau Brum- 
mel of the colony. There were cloaks by the score, some violet-colored, 
and coats lined with "taffety," and silver buttons, and like Bobby 
Shaf to, silver buckles for the knee. 

Nor was he a gentleman whose every thought — that is, every other 
thought — was given to clothes. He had books, 275 in all, a goodly 
showing for the times. "Luther on the Gallations" was one and 
"Calvin on Genisis" another. This doesn't sound so "cheerful" as the 
furniture ! 

It is stated that William Bradford's educational advantages were 
limited, but he so applied himself to study that he became proficient 
in French, Dutch, German, Latin and Greek. He also learned 
enough Hebrew "to enable him to see with his own eyes the ancient 
oracles of God in their native beauty." 

He is interred at Burial Hill, the only one of the Mayflower 
pilgrims whose resting place is definitely known. His son, William, 
was commander-in-chief of the Plymouth forces in Philip's war, and, 
next to Miles Standish, the chief military man of the colony. 

His son, Major John, bequeaths to his descendants eligibility to 
membership in societies of colonial wars and a double Mayflozver 
heritage, for his wife was Mercy Warren, granddaughter of Richard, 
of the Mayflower. 

William Bradford, printer and pilgrim, born in Leicestershire in 

[273] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

1660, came to America with Penn. After a few years he removed 
from Philadelphia to New York and started the Gazette, the first 
newspaper established there. For fifty years he was government or 
royal printer. 

For an almanac, printed by him in 1686, he offers a few apologies 
in the preface: "Some irregularities there be, which I desire you to 
pass over, this year. My materials were misplaced, and out of order, 
and I have been forced to use figures and letter of various sizes," 

Apropos of Bradford, it may be mentioned that the Historical 
Society of New York City has just been presented with a letter written 
by him — an exceptionally fine specimen. The society possesses very 
complete files of the Gazette and a number of early imprints of Brad- 
ford, but never before was it fortunate enough to secure a letter of the 
famous printer. The letter was written in 1724 to Captain Denne. 

Bradford is buried in Trinity churchyard. About forty years 
ago his monument was restored. 

The Bradfords have their Revolutionary sires. Gamalial, of 
Duxbury, Mass., and his son of the same name, fought side by side. 

Brave and valiant Bradfords, of the English branch, were Gen- 
eral Sir Thomas, knight of the Great Cross of the Bath, and his 
brother, Lieutenant Colonel Sir Henry, who received his death wound 
at Waterloo. 

Besides its pioneers, governors and warriors, the family has its 
martyr — John Bradford, a celebrated preacher of St. Paul's Cathedral, 
a friend of Ridley and Cranmer, "sealed his opposition to papal bigotry 
at the fiery stake." 

Every one knows the story of Deborah Sampson, but perhaps it is 
not recalled that she was of Bradford lineage. She was granddaugh- 
ter of Elisha and Bathsheba Bradford, of the Duxbury family. De- 
borah, under the name of Robert Shurtleff, served three years as 
private in the Revolution. She was in many engagements, and it is 
recorded that she always behaved "manfully" — this was showing her 
Bradford spirit. When about fifty years of age, or in 1784, she mar- 
ried Benjamin Gannett. 

The arms reproduced are: Argent, on a fesse, sable, three stag's 
heads, erased, or. 

Crests: (1) A stag's head, erased, or; (2) A doubleheaded eagle,

Motto: Fier et sage — "Proud and wise/' 

These are the arms ascribed to William, Mayflower pilgrim, and 
it is said that they may be seen in the little Norman Church at Auster- 
field, where Bradford was baptized. His seal was a double-headed 
eagle. This is shown at Pilgrim's Hall, Plymouth ; also a photograph 
of the arms, the photograph being made from the coat of arms em- 
broidered by the great-granddaughter of the Governor. 

A letter in his clear, beautiful hand is also a treasured relic. The 
seal shows the double-headed eagle and his signature, "Wm. Brad- 
ford, governor." 

Burke's Peerage gives several arms for Bradford families. Sam- 
uel, Bishop of Rochester, Dean of Westminster and Chaplain to Will- 
iam III. and Queen Anne, bore the arms here reproduced. 

Other heraldic charges for the Bradfords are the lion, wolf, pea- 
cock and the buglehorn.

HE Welsh form of this name is Gruff ydd, and Llewney, 
in the Vale of Clwydd, is one home of the family. 

Griffith, Griffiths, and Griffyth are present day 
forms of the name, Griffith being the usual or- 
thography. Early records of the family in this coun- 
try invariably have the name with the final "s" — 
Griffiths. Grif fitts and Griffis are variations of the name. 

The family is an ancient one, descended from Rhys ap Tudor 
Mawr, ap Griffith, Prince of South Wales, 1077, through Trahairn 
Goch, chieftain of Llyn, Carnarvonshire, North Wales. 

One William Griffith of Llyn, and of this line, about 1700, son 
of John and Elizabeth, daughter of Viscount Bulkley, and member of 
Parliament, married Mary, daughter of Sir Bibye Lake of London. 

Owen ap Robert Owen, of Anglesey, was an ancestor of this line, 
and marriage connections include the Earls of Aylesford, and the 
noble house of Trevon of Trevalyn. 

This is one account of the origin of the Griffiths. Another has 
it that the family can claim descent from Lleyellyn, the last King of 
Wales, who was the son of Griffith, also King of Wales. 

"The Griffiths in America, descendants of a Welsh princess, 
would now be enjoying the millions that fell to the British crown, if 
family records had been carefully kept, to furnish missing links." 

This is a quotation from a family record. The present writer 
regrets possessing no knowledge whatever of these "millions" — her 
greatest joy would be to divide it among the Griffiths and the Griffith 
families — no, to share it with them. 

The Princess referred to was Katherine, daughter of Lord Rys, 
Prince of South Wales, and she married Rydderch ap Kydiron. 

Their son was Rys ap Rydderch of Castle Howell, or Hywel. 
Prince Rys, or Lord Rys ap Griffith was a man of valor in a warlike 
age, as well as "a great patron of the bards." "He made a feast at 

[277] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Christmas, and caused it to be proclaimed throughout the country, 
a year and a day beforehand. Thither came many strangers, and 
among deeds of arms, and other "shows," the Prince caused all the 
poets of Wales, who were makers of songs, and recorded of gentle- 
men's arms and pedigrees, to come thither, and provided chairs for 
them, where they should dispute together, to try their cunning, where 
great and rich gifts were prepared for the overcomers." 

The family is an old one in Staffordshire, and recently a Joseph 
Griffiths died there, aged over ninety years, who had known five 
bishops, five rectors, five parish clerks, and he had lived in the reign 
of five monarchs. 

One immigrant ancestor was William Griffith, from Cardigan, 
Wales, 1 72 1. He settled in New York State. Then there is the usual 
tradition of three brothers. They, too, were born in Wales, and 
crossed the sea in 1715. Their names were Griffith, John and William, 
and they made homes in Chester county, Pennsylvania. 

Griffith Griffiths married, 1722, Gwen, daughter of Evan 
Thomas, and he died in 1760, possessed of considerable property, as 
his will shows. His children were Evan, Amos, Levi, Dan, and 
Rebecca. In the course of time descendants of the three brothers 
dropped the "s," writing their name Griffith. 

The three brothers were sons of Griffith Johns of Llanddewi, 
Cardigan. They are called college-bred men, of considerable wealth. 
There was a marriage, of this branch of the family, with the Howells 
of Bucks county, Pa. Other marriage connections include the Sharps, 
Fosters, and Cadwalladers. A relic is an old Welsh Bible, with records. 
One is the autograph of a Richard Williams — "his hand and pen, 
God save Queen Anne and all her men." 

The Griffith record is a patriotic one, and among officers of the 
Revolution are the following names : From Pennsylvania, Lieutenant 
Benjamin, '76, and Ensign Levi, '76 to '83 ; Levi died 1825 ; from Mary- 
land, Captain Samuel, '76 to '78 ; Lieutenant Charles, Colonel Charles 
Greenberry Griffith, of the Flying Camp, and commissioned lieuten- 
ant; from Virginia, Captain Philemon, '76 to '77 — he died 1838; Sur- 
geon and Chaplain David, '76 to '79. 

Ready with pen as with sword, are the Griffiths. The founder of 
the "Monthly Review," Great Britain, was Ralph Griffiths, born in 

[2781 



GRIFFITH FAMILY 

Shropshire. "He was a steady advocate of literature, a firm friend 
and possessed of great social gifts." His brother, a planter of South 
Carolina about the middle of the eighteenth century, was perhaps the 
founder of the Southern branch of the family. 

In Pennsylvania the Welsh family of Griffiths has always been 
prominent. In 171 5 Thomas Griffiths and wife, Mary Norris, were 
living in Philadelphia. Thomas was keeper of the great seal of 
Pennsylvania; provincial councilor; judge of the supreme court, and 
mayor of Philadelphia. He died in 1740. William Griffiths was one 
of the founders of the Pennsylvania Hospital. A bookplate used by 
Thomas is in possession of a descendant. 

The coat of arms illustrated is blazoned: Gules, three lioncels (or 
little lions), passant, in pale, argent, armed azure. 

Crest : A demi-lion, rampant, sable, armed gules. 

Motto: Virtus omnia nobilitat — "Virtue ennobles all." This is 
also the motto of the Herrick family. 

This coat-armor was borne by William Griffith, the New York 
ancestor, 1721. 

A similar coat of arms is that of the Griffiths ("s") of Thorn 
Grove Park, Worcester, England. It is : Or, a lion, rampant, gules. 

Crest: A demi-lion, rampant, gules. No motto. 

The Griffiths (V) of the Isle of Anglesey bear: Gules, a 
chevron, between three lions, rampant, or. 

The Griffiths who claim Lord Rys as founder of the family, bear :

MPERORS and king's, princes and dukes, have borne 
the name of Phillips, or Philip, and the family has a 
rich heritage in its traditions. The name is nearly as 
old as the world itself. Philippi was a city of ancient 

Macedonia, and the founder of Macedon was Philip. 

iHSUSlfS Phillips has been a surname in Great Britain for 

500 years, and the family can be traced back in unbroken line to the 
year 1200. The homes have been in Devon, Suffolk, Warwick, Staf- 
ford, and Leicester. At Stratford-on-Avon the family has been seated 
for centuries. 

It is not an easy matter to keep track of the spelling of the name. 
In Wales, where the family flourished, Phillipse is the usual form, 
and the oldest coat-armor of the family is that granted to the Welsh 
branch. The coat is extremely simple, proving its antiquity. 

Among various orthographies, the following may be given as 
samples: Phylyppe; Pphillips, a form seen at the present day; 
Philopoe; Phillot; Philippo; Philcox is called a diminutive, and Phelp, 
Phelphs, Philipson are derived from the same root. The son of Philip 
is the meaning of Philipson. The Philipsons of Thirlwell, Northum- 
berland, trace back to Philip Thirlwell. Phipp and Filkin are also 
derived from Philip. 

The Philips of Staffordshire descend from Francis Phylyppe of 
Neyther Teyne. He lived in the reign of Edward VI. Grace Dieu 
Manor in Leicester was the home of the Phillipps. The king's ser- 
geant in the reign of James II was a Phillips. 

Westminster Abbey has the honor of guarding the ashes of the 
poet, John Phillips, who, "were it for nothing else, would be remem- 
bered as the first to have a genuine literary appreciation of Milton." 
Ambrose Philips was an Englishman of letters, "of a good Leicester- 
shire family." 

The pioneer, Reverend George Phillips, came over with Gover- 
nor Winthrop, who said of him that he was a godly man, specially 
gifted. Reverend George was son of Christopher of Norfolk, Eng- 
land, and a graduate of Cambridge. His salary as the first pastor

of the Watertown, Massachusetts, church, 1630, was "3 hogheads of 
meale ; 1 hogshead of malte ; 4 bushels of Indian corn ; 1 bushel of oat- 
meal and 50 lbs. of salte fish." He also had 30 acres of land. His 
wife died soon after they had made their home in the new world. If 
we had her portrait, should we not see 

"Her very best gown is spread billowing round — 
The kind that would 'stand by itself/ I'll be bound ! 
It came from a chest where the lavender hid, 
To steal from its folds as she lifted the lid. ,, 

Pastor George consoled himself with a new wife, Elizabeth, 
"probably the widow of Captain Robert Welden." By his two wives 
he had nine children, one son, the Reverend Samuel — a favorite name 
with the Phillips — had eleven children, of whom one, his daughter 
Elizabeth, who married Rev. Edward Payson, had twenty children. 

The founder of the Long Island Phillips was Zerobabel, son of 
George, the immigrant. Other founders of families were Ebenezer, 
Thomas, John, and James — all of Massachusetts. 

Walter and Andrew were Maine pioneers, and Michael, Richard, 
and Jeremiah settlers in Rhode Island. 

The first mayor of Boston, where he was born, 1770, was John 
Phillips, whose son was Wendell, the brilliant orator. 

Among officers of the Revolution were Sergeant Noah Philips, 
who was one of the "Lexington Alarm. ,, His name is also spelled 
Phelps. Lieutenant Thomas and Captain Samuel were from Rhode 
Island; Ensign John, Lieutenant Jonathan, and Colonel Joseph were 
from New Jersey; Ensigns Samuel and James were of the Virginia 
family. These names are spelled Phillips. The Maryland family 
were Philips. Samuel Phillips, Jr., born at North Andover, Massa- 
chusetts, 1 75 1, was a member of the Provincial Congress, and of the 
constitutional convention of 1779. He was president of the State 
Senate for fifteen years, and lieutenant-governor of his State. He 
also organized the first incorporated academy of Massachusetts and 
helped to endow it. 

Captain William Phillips of Louisa County, Virginia, was a 
"Ranger," 1763. 

One line of the Phillips, through marriage with a member of the 

[282]

Drake family, can claim the family of Sir Francis Drake as near, if 
not next to kin. 

The coat-of-arms reproduced is blazoned: Argent, a lion ramp- 
ant, sable, ducally gorged and chained, or. 

Crest: A lion, as in the arms. 

Motto: Ducit amor patriae — 'The love of my country leads me 
on." This coat-armor is attributed to the Reverend George. 

Burke's "Peerage" blazons this coat-of-arms for Sir John Phil- 
ipps, also spelled Philips, who was created a baronet in 1621, of Picton 
Castle, Pembroke. The supporters of this coat-of-arms are two 
horses, argent. "Readiness for king and country" is the significance 
of the horse in heraldry. The Barons Milford, of the Irish peerage, 
trace back to Sir John Philipps. The date of the granting of one coat- 
of-arms is 1579.

ORTON, a name of Anglo-Saxon derivation, admits of 
little, if any, variation; Horten, Hortun, and Hor- 
toun being perhaps the only ones. It is from ort, or 
wort, meaning herbs or vegetables, and tun, an en- 
closure, or a garden. Horton is the name of towns 
in Kent, York, Chester, Dorset, and Gloucester. In 
Norway there is a place called Horten; Ville de Horta is a town in 
the Azores. 

What is perhaps the oldest frame house in the United States was 
built on Long Island by Barnabas Horton. This house was still stand- 
ing a few years ago. Barnabas was born, 1600, in Leicestershire, Eng- 
land, and came over in the Swallow, 1635, with wife and two sons, 
Joseph and Benjamin. Eight children were born here. The captain 
of the Swallow was a Horton, Jeremy by name. 

If you want a name for your family chart, dating back to the six- 
teenth century, put down Joseph, father of Barnabas, the pilgrim. 
We can go farther back, and find Robert de Horton, lord of the Manor 
of Horton, or Great Horton, before 13 10, but just where he comes in, 
or where any of the present generation of American Hortons come in 
with reference to him, has not yet been ascertained. 

In the time of Charles L, William Horton, of Howroyde, was a 
man of some importance — enough so to have his name handed down 
to the present day. Sudbrooke Park, Petersham, is one seat of the 
family, and it was the home of the author and statesman, Sir Robert 
Horton, Governor of Ceylon, knighted in 1830. It was his wife, Lady 
Beatrix, who was the subject of Byron's lines, "She walks in beauty." 
To go back to our first American ancestor, Barnabas : He went 
first to Massachusetts, and then to Long Island in 1640, with twelve 
other Puritans. The fateful number of thirteen had no terrors for 
them. Southhold was the town they founded, and any Horton of 

[285] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

to-day who can hark back to Barnabas is eligible for membership with 
colonial societies, for Barnabas was a magistrate, and member of the 
court. As he had the foresight to provide himself with a tombstone — 
perhaps before be left England — his grave is still marked, and a few 
years ago, that is, about fifty, his stone was relettered. It is down in 
the records, that, of the thirteen, he was the only one whose Lares 
and Penates included a monument, and it is said that he had the 
epitaph engraved upon it himself. The writer understands that the 
epitaph is not uncomplimentary, but rather the reverse. He died 
eighty years young. 

Thomas, of Springfield, and Jeremiah, also of Massachusetts, 
were other pioneers. 

The New York branch of the family was founded by Joseph, of 
the second generation, and to trace back to him is to find an ancestor 
with a record, for he was selectman, justice of the peace, and captain 
of militia. He had five sons and several daughters. 

When it comes to Revolutionary ancestors, there are enough and 
to spare, so that every one in good standing can have a few. Jonathan, 
of the fifth generation, of Long Island, was one of the signers of the 
"Pledge for Independence," in 1775. Colonel Nathan was a bold 
soldier, and on guard at the execution of Andre. The gun he carried 
at the time is now a relic treasured by descendants in North Carolina. 

Others in the Revolution, from New Jersey, were Captain Joseph 
and Surgeon Jonathan; from New York, Captains Ambrose and 
Thomas, and Lieutenant William; from Massachusetts, Lieutenant 
Jotham and Ensign Elisha; from Connecticut, Captain James, 

Major John Horton began as a wagoner; he was son of Lieu- 
tenant Israel, also a soldier. A valiant foremother whose record has 
been handed down was Deborah Ferry Horton, one of the number 
who spent the night in the famed "Forty Fort," the night after the 
Wyoming massacre. 

Of old Jason Horton, of Long Island, the story is told that he was 
a strict observer of the Sabbath, and it hurt his feelings and grieved 
his honest soul that a neighbor appropriated the day to cutting wood 
for his family. Jason took the matter into his own hands, and depos- 
ited a load of wood at the door of his friend, who not only accepted the 
wood, but the hint, and no longer sawed wood on Sunday. 

The coat-armor reproduced is ascribed to Barnabas and is : Gules, 

[286] 



HORTON FAMILY 

a lion, rampant, argent, charged on the breast with a boar's head, 
couped, azure; a bordure engrailed of the second. 

Crest: A red rose seeded and barbed proper. 

Motto: Pro rege et lege — "For king and law." 

This is also the motto of the Stewart family. The lion is a valued 
charge of great dignity; the boar, the bearing of a warrior, and also 
the symbol of hospitality. Engrailed denotes land; the rose, hope; 
gules, magnanimity; argent, sincerity; azure, loyalty. 

Another Horton motto is : Quod vult, valde vult — "What he wills, 
he wills heartily and cordially."

REEMAN is a name which speaks for itself, as far as 
its significance is concerned. He who assumed it as 
a surname was a free man — liber homo — John le 
Freeman, say, and not John le Bond. 

Frewoman and Frewif, or Frewife, are forms 
found in ancient records. The name is of good old 
Anglo-Saxon derivation. Variations are Le Fremans, Fremund, and 
Fremond, also Franchome and Fraunchomme, which look like very 
distant cousins, indeed. Ff reman and ff reman are of frequent occur- 
rence in colonial records. 

An old seat of the family is Fawley Court, Henley-upon-Thames, 
Oxford, and the Freemans have lived at Yorkshire, and Shakespeare's 
home, Stratford-upon-Avon, since time was. 

The great history of "The Norman Conquest" was written by 
the historian of the family — Edward Freeman. One Thomas Free- 
man "set up for a poet," and was a friend of Shakespeare's. "Mrs. 
Freeman" was the Duchess of Marlborough's alias when in intimate 
correspondence with her royal mistress, Queen Anne, whom she ad- 
dressed as "Mrs. Morley." 

Edmund or Edmond Freeman came over in the Abigail, 1635, 
with sons and daughters, and lived first at Lynn, or helped to settle 
it. Samuel, who came over in Gov. Winthrop's fleet, was a pro- 
prietor of Watertown, and is called a brother of Edmund, who had 
the foresight to provide himself with "plate-armor." He would show 
those Indians something of the science of war. The armor, twenty 
pieces in all, was soon presented to the Colony, and is probably still 
treasured as a relic. 

The Freemans have been conspicuous as founders of towns. In 
the records of the first church of Newark, New Jersey, Stephen is 
mentioned as "of the company from Milford, Connecticut, for settling 

[289] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

a town on the Passaic." One of the proprietors of Syracuse, New 
York, was Joshua, born in Duchess County. He is called the man 
above all others who promoted the growth of Syracuse. He died in 
North Carolina, 1848. 

Among immigrant ancestors we may mention Reverend Bernar- 
dus Freeman, who came from Holland. He was perhaps of the Puri- 
tan band, and born in England. The tradition regarding another is 
that he came over in 1735, in Thomas Chalkley's ship to Philadelphia. 
His name has not been found on the records. 

Must we acknowledge a pirate in the family? Not if we can 
help it. Here is the romantic story, and the reader must take it and 
rearrange it as he pleases, and then pass it on to the next one. Isaac 
Freeman was his name; then there was the good ship Bethel — that 
comes next. To make Isaac captain will be a good way to manage 
this part of it. The year was 1748, and there was war — and Isaac 
captured one hundred and sixty-one chests of silver and two chests of 
gold ! Here is the outline for a romance, and no extra charge for it. 

Those who trace back to Samuel of Watertown, born 1657, strike 
a pretty good ancestor, if it is societies and the like they wish to join, 
for Samuel was a member of militia, a selectman, and for nineteen 
years representative. 

Revolutionary ancestors to look up are Lieutenant Jeremiah, 
Haskall, and Thomas, of Massachusetts, and Brigadier-General 
Nathaniel, of the same State, who filled nearly every office in the 
gift of his native town, Sandwich. Twice married, he was the proud 
father of a full score of children, of whom all but two lived to mature 
age. A man with a splendid record, he is an ancestor to be proud of. 
Are you of his line? If so, your road leads straight to many patriotic 
societies. 

"Major John," who died in 1719, aged about 100 years, is good 
for Colonial war records. He provided, by will, for the freedom of 
his negroes, "with four acres of land, a horse and a cow." 

The Maine branch was founded by Enoch, born 1706, a descend- 
ant of Samuel the first. Colonel Enoch — to give him his title — was 
a graduate of Harvard. He held various offices ; for many years he 
was judge of the probate court, and, in 1748, was a naval officer. 

Characteristics of the family are uncompromising integrity, 
sound judgment, fixedness of principle, filial duty, conjugal tender- 

[290] 



FREEMAN FAMILY 

ness, sincere and steady friendship. The Freemans are given to 
hospitality — friends of the oppressed. 

Of the feminine members we may say that many possess not only 
beauty of person and mind, but "sound good sense" — a valuable asset ! 

One marriage connection traces back, through the Sears 'family 
of Massachusetts, to Governor Winthrop. In "Americans of Royal 
Descent," we find that lineage may be traced to Henry I., Philip III. 
and Louis VIII. of France, and King John of England. Any scoffer 
who derides such ancestry doubtless cannot boast of a king with a 
crown on his head anywhere on his family chart. 

The illustrated coat-of-arms is : Azure, three lozenges, or 

Crest: A demi-lion, rampant, gules, holding between his paws a 
lozenge, or. 

Motto: Liber et audax — "Free and bold." 

The lozenge, like all square figures, denotes honesty, wisdom, 
probity, and it is also a token of noble birth. 

This coat-armor is attributed to the pilgrim ancestors, Edmund 
of Lynn, and Henry of Woodbridge, New Jersey, and its facsimile in 
etchings and embroidery has been handed down from generation to 
generation.

ECORDS of the Wallace family begin with Eimerus 
Galeius, a Welshman, who may have been a descend- 
ant of Galgacus, a Caledonian chieftain of the first 
century, A. D., for some authorities tell us that Wal- 
lace is a name derived from Galgacus. This would 
seem to be a question open to discussion. 
Eimerus Galeius had a son called Richard Walense, who, about 
the beginning of the twelfth century, had large estates in Ayr, Scot- 
land. He was a powerful chieftain, and his sons, Richard and Henry, 
who wrote the name Walays, added to the paternal estates lands in 
Renfrew. One of the family estates was named Ellerslie, and there 
Scotland's national hero, Sir William, son of Sir Malcolm Wallace, 
is supposed to have been born, 1270. 

The variations of the name are legion. To give a few examples : 
Wallys, Walais, Walleyes, Waless, Waleys, Wallas, Waliss, Wallaise. 
Walace, and Walense. Wallis is the ancient Irish form of the name, 
and Vallance a Scotch orthography of the early age. 

One of the first, if not the first of the name here, was Reverend 
James Wallace, who was living at Elizabeth City, Virginia, about 
1695. He came from Perthshire. Stafford and King George coun- 
ties, Virginia, were early homes of the Wallaces, and about the middle 
of the eighteenth century Doctor Michael Wallace owned property in 
both counties. As he called his house Ellerslie, or Elderslie, and it is 
known that he came from Scotland, where his father, William, was 
born in 1 719, it is inferred that he was of the same family as Wallace, 
the hero. Michael, upon his arrival in this country, became a student 
of a certain Doctor Brown, the happy father of nine beautiful Miss 
Browns. Like most — all, indeed — of the doctor's students, Michael 
straightway lost his heart to one, Elizabeth by name, and parental 
sanction failing the pair, an elopement from the second-story window 
(the tale is quite explicit about this) followed. An obliging friend 
held the ladder. This, too, is put down in black and white. 

[293] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Doctor Michael and family lived at one time at Falmouth. Vir- 
ginia, and among the fees recorded in his account book is one of 800 
pounds of tobacco. 

One of the early fathers of the Pennsylvania Wallaces was James, 
who died in Warwick County, 1777. He held many offices. He was 
justice of the peace; coroner of Bucks County, 1768; and trustee of 
the Neshaming Presbyterian meeting. It was adjoining this house of 
worship that its first pastor, Reverend William Tennent, founded the 
famous Log College. James Wallace was a patriot, a member of the 
committee of safety, a deputy from Bucks County to Philadelphia, 
1774, a member of the committee appointed to purchase all arms not 
in use in the country, and a delegate to learn the process of powder- 
making at the saltpetre works, Philadelphia. James married Isabella 
Miller, of Warwick County, and he was the son of James Wallace, 
who came from the North of Ireland and died in Warwick in 1724. 

One of the New England progenitors was John Wallace, who 
removed from Ireland to New Hampshire about 1720, with wife, 
Annis Barnet. His son, William, born in Londonderry, New Hamp- 
shire, married Hannah, sister of Matthew Thornton, delegate to the 
Continental Congress, 1776, and a "signer." 

The Wallaces also had homes at New Ipswich, New Hampshire, 
and Ashburnham and Lunnenburg, Massachusetts. New England 
marriage connections include the Morses of Lynn, the Gowens, and 
the Bonds, the latter descendants of Count Rumford. 

Virginia, Tennessee, and other Southern connections include the 
Lewis, Hickman, Scott, Barron, and Randolph families. 

The patriotism of the Wallaces has always been conspicuous and 
disinterested. Every war has had its representatives. Officers of the 
Virginia branch in the American Revolution included Ensign James, 
Surgeon James, Lieutenants Adam, Henry and Gustavus, and Captain 
Andrew. Ensign John and Surgeon Michael were Pennsylvania rep- 
resentatives, and Captain James was of the Rhode Island branch 

Representatives in the Mexican war included William H. and 
Lewis, or "Lew" Wallace, of the Western branch of the family. The 
last named was not only distinguished as a soldier, a lawyer, and a 
painter, but he was the author of what is called the most celebrated 
novel ever written by an American, "Ben Hur." Lew Wallace was the 
son of David, one of the governors of Indiana. 

[2941 



WALLACE FAMILY 

One of the poets of the family was William Ross Wallace, born 
in Kentucky. The story is told that one night, when he was in com- 
pany with several other brilliant men, the question arose, "What rules 
the world?" Various opinions were expressed. After a while Wal- 
lace left the room. When he returned he read the verses which he had 
just composed : 

"The hand that rocks the cradle 
Is the hand that rules the world." 

Characteristics of the Wallaces are undaunted courage, physical 
strength and prowess, and an enthusiastic love of liberty. 

The arms reproduced were borne by the Wallaces of Ellerslie. 
Virginia. The blazon is : Gules, a lion rampant, argent, within a bor- 
dure, compony, of the last and azure. 

Crest : An ostrich, holding in his beak a horseshoe, proper. 

Motto: Libertas optima resumi. 

This coat-armor is also attributed to the Wallaces of Pennsyl- 
vania, but with a different crest, which is a demi-lion rampant, and 
the motto, Pro patria.

BY

Editor-in-Chief 

|ITTLE systematic genealogical work has been done on 
the German Palatinate families which entered the 
Province of New York, in 1710, established settle- 
ments on both sides of the Hudson River below Al- 
bany, and occupied the valley of the Schoharie River. 
Yet they contributed to America stems which have 
developed into sturdy families, like the Rockefellers and the Wanama- 
kers, also giving us the celebrated pioneer and Indian fighter, Captain 
Conrad Weiser; the brave fighter for liberty and freedom of the 
press, Peter Zenger ; and the Revolutionary patriot, General Nicholas 
Herkimer, hero of the battle of Oriskany, 6 August, 1777, which 
prevented St. Leger from joining Burgoyne and so contributed to that 

[315] 




THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

complete triumph of American liberty in the battle of Saratoga which 
Creasy places among his "fifteen decisive battles of the world." 

Several Schneiders, heads of families, were among the German 
Palatines who settled along the Hudson, in 1710. 

JOHAN DIETRICH SCHNEIDER, or Richard Schneider, 
came from "Hackenburg," as we learn from the marriage records of 
two of his children, in 171 5. His wife was Anna Maria, for "Anna 
Maria, wife of Dietrich Schneider, " was a baptismal witness on I 
February, 1719 (Baptisms, West Camp Lutheran Church, Burhan's 
Collection, page 37.) His children included the two following: 

1 Anthony Schneider, who on 2 November, 171 5, married Mar- 
garetta, daughter of Christian Dietrich, "1715, Nov. 2, An- 
thonius Schneider, son of Dietrich Schneider, of Hackenburg 
(and) Margaretta, daughter of Christian Dietrich of the 
Graffschaft, Nanwid." (Marriages, West Camp Lutheran 
Church, Burhan's Collection, page 86.) Anthony Schneider 
and his wife, Margreth, had a daughter, Agnes, born 29 June 
and baptized 7 July, 171 7. (Baptisms, West Camp Lutheran 
Church, Burhan's Collection, page 35.) 

11 Anna Catharina Schneider, who on 7 June, 171 7, married 
Johannes George Lannert. "171 5, June 7, Joh. Georg Lannert. 
son of Philipp Lannert, of Graftschaft, Ussingen (and) Anna 
, Catharina, dau. of Joh. Dietrich Schneider of the Graftchafte 
Hackenberg." (Marriages, West Camp Lutheran Church, 
Burhan's Collection, page 86.) 

The above Dietrich Schneider and his son, Anthony — under the 
Dutch form, Tennis, — appear as members of the Livingston Manor, 
Independent Military Company, in 171 5. (O'Callaghan, Documen- 
tary History of New York, Volume 3, page 704.) 

JOHAN WILHELM SCHNEIDER, was another of the 1710 
German Palatinates. His wife was Anna Gerdrant. This fact, 
together with a clue to his place of residence in Germany before com- 
ing to America, is gathered from the records following which name 
two of his children : 

[316] 



SCHNEIDER FAMILY 

i Johan George Schneider, born abroad, probably in Germany, 
who on 5 December, 171 8, married Anna Christina Thomas. 
"1718, Dec. 5, Johann George Schneider, son of Johann Wil- 
helm Schneider of wider Elssen Sachsenburg Heerschaft (and) 
Anna Christina, dau. of Stephen Thomas of Wolferlingen 
Sachsenburg Heerschaft and also step-daughter of Jury Ober- 
bach." (Marriages, West Camp Lutheran Church, Burhan's 
Collection, page 88.) 
11 Anna Maria Schneider, b. 22 Jan., 1714, baptized 12 February, 
1 71 5. (Baptisms, West Camp Lutheran Church, Burhan's 
Collection, page 23, where her parents appear as Johann Wil- 
helm Schneider and Anna Gerdant.) 
Wilhelm, father of the above children, was of Annesberg, Ger- 
man town, Dutchess, now Columbia County, New York, in 171 t, 
where, as "John Wm. Schneider," he appears as No. 6 in the Anns- 
berg Company, under Captain Hartman Winedecker, of "Palatine 
Volunteers for the Expedition against Canada, 171 1," (O'Callaghan, 
Documentary History of New York, Volume III, page 527.) No. 36 
in the same list is "Johan Schneider." This may have been another 
son of Wilhelm, or his son, mentioned above, with the more individ- 
ual name, George, omitted. 

FIRST GENERATION 

1. HENRICH 1 SCHNEIDER may have been a son of one of 
the two immigrants mentioned above, Dietrich and Wilhelm, for he 
was born about 1681, and was thus about 29 years of age when he 
came over from Germany, in 1710. This we learn from the record of 
his death: "3 Mar. 1748, Henrich Schneider, alt 67 years, bur. 5 
March" (First Record Book of the Reformed Church of Germantown, 
N. Y., under "Deaths," copied by the compiler in 1905.) From the 
same record book we also learn that he was an officer of this church 
in 1739. On 26 August, 1724, as "Henrig Schneider," he appears in 
a list of those "not willing to continue" under the proposed distribu- 
tion to the Palatinates of the 6,000 acres obtained from Robert Liv- 
ingston and located in the present town of Germantown, Columbia 
County, New York; but he probably reconsidered the matter, for 
there he lived and died. His wife was Susanna or Anna, as we learn 

[317] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

from one of the two records following, which establish the names of 

two of his sons : 

i Johan Samuel Schneider, born 10 September, baptized 15, Sep- 
tember, 17 14 (Baptisms, West Camp Lutheran Church, Bur- 
han's Collection, page 23, where the father is Henrich Schneid- 
er, the mother, Anna, and the witnesses, Samuel Miiller and 
Anna, his wife.) 
11 Conrad Schneider, who on 24 August, 1741, married Anna or 
Susanna, daughter of Samuel Miiller. "1741, Aug. 24, Conrad 
Schneider, son of Henr. (and) Susanna Miller dau. of Sam." 
(Marriages, Zion's Lutheran Church, Loonenburg, now Ath- 
ens, N. Y., Burhan's Collection, page 153.) 
The parents of these children appeared as witnesses, 1 February, 

1 7 19, to the baptism of Johann Henrich, son of Nicolaus Schmid and 

wife, Eva, the witnesses being Jacob Schaffer, Henrich Schneider. 

and Susanna Schneider. (Baptisms, West Camp Lutheran Church, 

Burhan's Collection, page 37.) 

SECOND GENERATION 

2. CONRAD 2 SCHNEIDER (Henrich 1 ), so far as my re- 
search has ascertained, first appears on record on 24 August, 1741. 
the date of his marriage, above noted, to Susanna or Anna, daughter 
of Samuel and Anna Miiller, two more of the 17 10 Palatinate immi- 
grants. Conrad lived to a good old age, in Germantown, Columbia 
County, where he and his wife were prominent members of the Ger- 
man Reformed Church. Conrad's will was proved in 181 1. His wife, 
Anna or Susanna, was probably the Annatje, baptized 21 May, 1727, 
of the following from the Old Linlithgow (Livingston Manor) 
Church Record. "1727, May 21, Annatje [child of] Samuel Muller 
[and] Anna Marie Muller." "American Ancestry." (II 82) gives 
the following brief notice of her father : 

"Samuel Miller, born in Wortemburg, Germany, and emigrated 
to America, settled in Germantown, Columbia County, in the State of 
New York, obtained three parcels of land in the 6,000 acres pur- 
chased from Robert Livingston by Queen Anne and given by her to 
emigrants in Germantown, 1743." 

Conrad Schneider was a patriot Revolutionary soldier together 

[318]

with his sons, Conrad, Jr., Samuel and William, as the following 
Revolutionary records, compared with the list of his children, farther 
on, abundantly prove.

Her children, D. V., will be given at another time, in a sketch 
of the Schiefer Family. Her husband, Johannes Schiefer, Jr., 
was another descendant of German Palatinate immigrants of 
1 7 10, and both he and his father, Johannes Schiefer, Sr., were 
patriot Revolutionary soldiers, 
v Mareitgen Schneider, or Marytjen, was baptized at German- 
town, 2 August 1749 (First Book, German Reformed Church 
Record, p. 119, copied by F. A.), and married Henrich Schede- 
wey, as appears from the following baptismal record of their 
son, Conrad: 1778. 20 September. Conrad, son of Henrich 
Schedewey, Marytjen Schneider; witnesses, Conrad Schneider 
[son of] Susanna Muller (First Book, German Reformed 
Church Records, Germantown, p. 209, copied by F. A. ) . 
vi Eva Schneider, baptized at Germantown, 4 November, 1753, 

witnesses, Willen Will and Anna Muller (Ibid., p. 130.) 
vii Johannes Schneider, baptized at Germantown, 9 January 1757, 
witnesses, David Schukmacher, Anna Maria Lescher. (Ibid., 

P. 145.) 
viii Wilhelmus Schneider, baptized at Germantown, 2 July, 1759 
(Ibid., p. 152.) He may be the Wiliam Schneider who on 2 
October, 1781, married Margretha Schneider at Claverack 
(Claverack Church Records, Burhan's Collection, p. 14.) His 
Revolutionary record has been given, in part, above. The New 
York Census of Pensioners, 1840, p. 104, probably refers to 
him in mentioning William Snyder, aged 84, Germantown, Co- 
lumbia County, New York, residing, 1 June, 1840, with William 
Snyder. 

THIRD GENERATION 

3. SAMUEL 3 SCHNEIDER (Conrad 2 Henrich), was bap- 
tized at Loonenburg, now Athens, Greene County, New York, or at 
any rate by the pastor of the Lutheran Church there, as the following 
record shows: "1745 Nov. 17. Camp. Samuel [child of] Conr.

Schneider, Susanna" (Baptisms, Zion Lutheran Church, Loonenburg, 
now Athens, Burhan's Collection, p. 63.) His Revolutionary record 
has been shown, in part, in the preceding sketch of his father. He was 
married, at Germantown, Columbia County, N. Y., 26 November, 
1769, to Regina Gerren Reich (First Book, German Reformed Church, 
Germantown.) He lived at Germantown, and was a member of the 
German Reformed Church there, from the records of which, in 1905, 
the names of his children were obtained by the present compiler as 
follows : 

Children : 

1 Hendrich Schneider, baptized 30 September, 1770; parents, 

Samuel Schneider and Regina Gerenreich; witnesses, Henrich 

Schneider, Gertien Heifer his V. (First Record Book, p. 117.) 

11 Petrus Schneider, baptized 18 June, 1772; witnesses, Henrich 

Will, Eva Schneider in (Ibid., p. 184.) 
in Annatjen Schneider, baptized 19 February, 1775 (Idid., p. 196.) 
iv Conrad Schneider, baptized 2 September, 1777; parents, Sam- 
uel Schneider, Regina Gernreich ; witnesses, Conrad Schneider, 
Susanna Muller (Ibid., p. 206.) 
v Wilhelm Schneider, baptized 24 March, 1780 (Ibid., p. 215.) 
vi Samuel Schneider, baptized 24 February, 1782 (Ibid., p. 222.) 
vii Margaretha Schneider, baptized 29 August, 1784; witnesses, 
Johannes Schneider, Margaretha (Ibid.) 
American Ancestry, II, 117, 118, speaking of Brogan Snyder, of 
Germantown, N. Y. (son of Chester Schneider, born 1832), and of 
Washington and Chauncey Schneider, of Germantown (sons of 
Chancey Schneider), says that all three are grandsons of Samuel Sny- 
der of Germantown, born 1782, died 1870, who married Lydia Bissel. 
Samuel, their grandfather, is the sixth child in the above list; and 
the preceding genealogy proves the same authority correct in stating, 
further, that these grandsons of Samuel, b. 1782, were great-grand- 
sons of Samuel Snyder, of Germantown, born 1745, died 1822, who 
married Rezenia Conrad [rather, Gerrenreich], and had a first lieu- 
tenant's commission signed in 181 2 ; that they were great-great-grand- 
sons of Conrad Snyder, of Germantown, will proved 181 1, and his 
wife, Susanna; and are further correct in stating that Conrad, in turn, 
was "son of Hendrick Schneider, who was in Germantown January 
1, 1726."

SECOND GENERATION 

2. HENRY 2 FUNK, (the eldest son of Henry 1 Funk, the first 
American ancestor), was evidently born before his father came to 
America. He was naturalized on 14 February, 1730 (Publications 
of the Lancaster County Historical Society, Vol. XIV, No. 2, 1910), 
and if John Funk, the 17 10 colonist, was his younger brother, Henry 
must have been a grown man before he left Europe. 

As has been shown, to Henry the younger, did his father, Henry 
Funk, the colonist, desire to convey the two hundred acres of his 171 7 
patent. Henry Funk, Junior made his will on 7 October, 1736. It is 
recorded that this will, ( 'being in High Dutch is not Registered." 

The Will Book says : "Deer 30th, 1736 Appeared Joseph Musser 
and Jacob Risley two of the witnesses to the within written will who — 
declare they .... saw and heard Henry Funk the Testator sign seal 
.... the sd writing to be his last will .... Sa Blunston Dep Regr.

FRANK ALLABEN 

Editor-in-Chief 

ENRY ADAMS, who emigrated from Devonshire, 
England, and settled about 1636 in Braintree, Massa- 
chusetts, founded a family which is unique among 
American ancestral stocks for the number of eminent 
individuals it has produced. The Lee family of Vir- 
ginia can be compared with it for virility; and, if we 
lower our standard of individual eminence, can be cited as having 
produced fully as many sons conspicuous in public life. But the Lees 
give us only one lofty figure, Robert E. Lee, the greatest military 
genius of our Nation; while the Adams family, besides other distin- 
guished men, has produced three Americans of preeminent rank, two 
Presidents of the United States, and a third, still greater figure, Sam- 
uel Adams, to whom we are more deeply indebted for our independ- 
ent existence as a Nation than to any other single individual with the 
possible exception of George Washington. 

One other American family, the Harrisons of Virginia, Ohio, 
and Indiana, rival the Adams family in the singular distinction of 
having given us two of the twenty-nine Presidents we have so far had. 
Thus two families have produced four Presidents, nearly one-seventh 
of all our Chief Executives. Furthermore in Governor Benjamin 
Harrison of Virginia the Harrison family has to its credit a third 
conspicuous representative, one of the great patriotic figures of the 
Revolutionary period. Yet the two Benjamin Harrisons and General 
William Henry Harrison, in their combined abilities and eminence in 
service, will by most judges be accounted somewhat short of the com- 
bined stature of Samuel Adams, John Adams, and John Quincy 
Adams; while in men of secondary eminence and distinguished ser- 
vice, the remaining Adamses leave the Harrisons far in the rear. 

The Eleventh Edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica gives 

[345 1 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

about a page and a half to President John Adams, nearly a page and a 
half to President John Quincy Adams, nearly a page to Samuel 
Adams, conceding him "to have done more than any other one man, 
in the years immediately preceding the War of Independence, to mould 
and direct public opinion," gives over a half-page to Charles Francis 
Adams, diplomat, and also contains notices of Henry Adams, historian, 
of John Quincy Adams, candidate for vice-president on the ticket with 
Horace Greeley in 1872, of Brooks Adams, legal writer, and of Gen- 
eral Charles Francis Adams, Jr., Civil War general, historical author, 
and president of the Union Pacific Railway. These were all mem- 
bers of the "house of Braintree," as it has been facetiously styled, 
while three other American Adamses are also given articles in the 
Britannica, Henry Carter Adams, Economist, Herbert Adams, sculp- 
tor, and Herbert Baxter Adams, historian and educationalist. 

This record is unique ; yet the student of genealogy and heredity 
may raise a question : Is the ancestral strain in "the house of Brain- 
tree," which has lifted so many of its members into eminence, the 
Adams strain itself, or some other ancestral strain blended with the 
Adams blood? 

In other words, is the tendency toward genius, seen in the Brain- 
tree Adamses, to be attributed to their inheritance of Adams blood, or 
to their inheritance of the strain (common to the entire eight Brain- 
tree Adams who are noticed in the Encyclopaedia Britannica) which 
came to them from four passengers on the Mayflower, John Alden, 
Priscilla Mullins, and the latter's father and mother? 

This question is legitimate because the Alden-Mullins strain, 
found in two Presidents of the United States and in Samuel Adams, 
the "stormy petrel" of the American Revolution, is also found in 
two other of America's most eminent men of genius, William Cullen 
Bryant and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, as well as in a consider- 
able number of men of secondary talent. Is there, in the Adams fam- 
ily of Braintree, any evidence of anything above mediocrity prior 
to the intermarriage with the Bass family which brought the Alden- 
Mullins strain into the Adams family? 

As the writer himself has no claim to the Alden-Mullins blood, 
his inquiry simply grows out of an interest in the hereditary value of 
ancestral strains. In this connection he invites contributions or sug- 
gestions from any one interested in the particular problem before us 
— "the house of Braintree" — or in the general subject.

BY 

PETER FORMAN AND DAVID V. PERRINE 

{Condensed and Rearranged) 

ROM the tenth to the fourteenth centuries the names of 
Bard, Barde, and even Baird, are found in different 
parts of Europe. Migrating from Lorraine to 
d'Aosta in Piedmont and from there to Normandy, in 
France, they finally settled in Scotland. MacForbes, 
in his "Irish Genealogy," thinks it a huge joke to 
claim for the Bairds an Anglo-Saxon origin — that their origin is in 
reality Celtic. According to Dr. O'Hart, in his "Irish Pedigrees," 
Owen MacanBhaird of Monycassen, was descended from Eocha, son 
of Sodhan. Mac an Bhaird was anglicised Macward, modernized 
Ward. The descendants of Owen rendered the name O'Bairdam, 
variously anglicised as Baird, Bard, Barde, Barden, Bardin, Barten. 
Bartin, Berdan, Purdon, Verdon and Warden. 

Seigneur de Barde was among the followers of William the Con- 
queror in 1066. Henry de Barde was a witness to a charter of lands 
by King William the Lion of Scotland in 1 178, and Hugo de Baird was 
one of the subscribing witnesses to a safe conduct granted by King 
Richard I of England to King William the Lion in 1 194. 

In 1 191 Ugone di Bard, of the valley of d'Aosta, made allegiance 
to Francis I of Savoy. He owned a castle on Bard Rock, a natural 
defence, and bravely defended the place against large numbers, but 
at last was driven out. His sons were Marco and Aymone. 

On the "Ragman's Roll, ,, giving the names of those who, with 
Wallace, swore fealty to Edward I at Berwick, in 1296, are the names 
of Duncan Bard, of Sterlingshire, Fergus Bard, John Bard and 
Nicholas Bard, of Lanarkshire, Scotland. At the close of the thir- 
teenth century the Bairds were numerous in the Scotch lowlands from 
Eighton to Sterling, and as far into the highlands as Aberdeen and 

[349] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Banff. Thomas the Rhymer foretold, "There shall be an eagle in the 
craig while there is a Baird at Auchmedeen. ,, 

During the Scotch war for independence the Bards were hand 
in hand with Bruce and Wallace. Robert Bard, captured by the Eng- 
lish, was held a prisoner in Nottingham, and an order for his removal 
to the castle of Summerton was issued January, 13 17. What was his 
fate? On the following July, Elizabeth, late the wife of Robert, son 
of Ralph, made the effort to have Edmund Bard and John de Gem- 
elyng put in her place to seek and receive her dower in chancery at 
Windsor, she agreeing not to marry without the king's license. Out 
of an estate at Butterworth, in Yorkshire, held by William Bard, son 
of Robert, a tenth of a knight's fee was assigned to the widow's dower. 

A William Bard was routed and taken prisoner with Sir William 
Douglass, in 1333, in a skirmish with Sir Anthony Lacy on the English 
border. Jordan Baird was a constant companion of the brave William 
Wallace in all his warlike exploits from 1297 to 1305. There was an 
historian of the Baird family in 1768 to whom Sir William Johnston, 
of Hilton, reported he had seen a lineal genealogy from Jordan Baird 
to Sir James Baird, of Auchmedeen, afterwards Captain of the Com- 
pany of British Light Infantry in 1778 in the American Revolution. 

General Sir David Baird held command under Sir John Moore in 
the Peninsular campaign, after the death of that officer succeeded to 
the command, and had the honor to report the English victory at 
Corrunna. He was the son of Sir William Baird, the son of Sir Rob- 
ert, the son of James, the son of George, who was living in 1588. It 
may be that John Baird of Topenemus, of whom we will hereafter 
speak, was of kin to this family. 

The coat of arms of the Bards of the Val d'Aosta of Piedmont 
was a blue ground scattered with cross stars and shafts of gold, and 
on this two barbi (fishes). Marco di'Bard, son of Ugone, when he 
became Sarriod dTntrod, chose this device: "On silver a blue band 
on which three golden lions were decorated with blue." 

The other son of Ugone, Aymene di'Bard, when he became Sar- 
riod de la Tour, chose this device: "On silver a blue band on which 
three golden lions were decorated with blue, and in the left hand 
corner a red and black tower." 

A gentleman by the name of Baird saved the life of King William 
the Lion of Scotland from a wild beast, when he was separated from 

[35o] 



THE BAIRD FAMILY 

this attendant, and received for this deed large tracts of land and a 
coat of arms, viz: a boar passant, with the motto "Dominus fecit." 

FIRST GENERATION 

I. JOHN 1 BAIRD, of Topenemus, was evidently among the 
first settlers of the Topenemus neighborhood. Leaving his kindred 
in the old world he embarked to seek a settlement where he might 
enjoy freedom of conscience. No doubt he was greatly pleased with 
his first view of this Jersey land, the beautiful highlands of the 
Navesinks and the rich alluvial soil inland, and here made his home 
in one of the garden spots of the world. 

We think we have established beyond doubt that John Baird, who 
settled at Topenemus, emigrated from Aberdeen, Scotland, on the 
good ship "Exchange," Captain James Peacock, Master, which 
arrived at Staten Island about December 19th, A. D. 1683. We learn 
from Book A, page 155, State Archives, at Trenton, N. J., the names 
of various people who were deported from Scotland to America and 
duly registered December 5th, 1684. Among those named occurs 
John King, four years' service; John Nesmith, four years' service, 
John Baird, four years, &c, and forty- four others. 

After fulfilling his term of service we gather from various deeds 
and conveyances that he acquired several tracts of land at New x\ber- 
deen, Topenemus, and on Millstone brook in East Jersey and other 
places. It is probable that the Topenemus tracts formed his home- 
stead premises and that the tracts lying on Millstone brook were the 
part of his lands that afterwards went to David Baird, Sr., his son. It 
is said that John Baird and an Indian for a time dwelt in a cave, traces 
of which are yet visible on the banks of Topenemus brook, a little 
back and to the side of the present house, built by his grandson, James 
Baird, son of Zebulon, on the Daniel P. Van Dorn farm, near Marl- 
boro, formerly John Baird's homestead. 

Near the Baird premises at Topenemus the Quaker church was 
built, on a lot granted by Thomas Boel for that purpose, and there 
George Keith and his Quaker followers worshipped and buried their 
dead. John Baird may have known Keith when he was at Aberdeen, 
Scotland, his former parish, heard him preach as a Presbyterian to the 
Scotch Covenanters, and afterwards, as a Quaker preacher, admired 

[3511 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

him for his worth and often listened to his sermons to the Scotch and 
Quaker settlers at Topenemus. Afterwards, when Keith turned 
Episcopalian, Thomas Boel became an Episcopalian, as did many 
other Quakers at Topenemus. Thomas Boel, who died about March 
20th, 1 709- 1 710, in his will gave one and one-half acres of land at 
Topenemus to the Episcopal Church, with $6.00 toward the building 
fund. (See Thomas Bod's will, in Archives at Trenton, N. J., Liber 
1, page 309). 

John Baird was at last settled in his new home at Topenemus, 
close to a church where on the Sabbath day he could rest from his 
labors and worship God according to the dictates of his conscience, 
but, like Isaac of old, he was comfortless. He needed a companion to 
share his labors, his joys and sorrows. On page 2.7 of the Records of 
the Reformed Church of the Navesinks, in the historical discourse by 
Rev. Theo. W. Wells, D. D., can be found the following tradition of 
John Baird's courtship: One day he met in the woods Mary Hall, 
whom he afterwards married. As both were bashful they halted at 
some distance from each other under a tree. It was love at first sight. 
John, who was a Quaker, broke the silence by saying, "If thou wilt 
marry me, say 'y ea / if thou wilt not, say 'nay.' " Mary said 
"yea," and proved a noble wife and mother. Another tradition has 
it that John Baird, having heard of a shipwrecked vessel on board of 
which were several comely women, hurried on horseback to the scene 
of the wreck and there selected the woman of his choice, possibly a 
former playmate in Scotland. Their eyes met, and it was love, clean 
cut. He wooed, won her, and was comforted. 

From what we can gather at this distant time of the life and 
character of John Baird the first, we think him to have been a God- 
fearing, upright man, firm of convictions and purpose. On his tomb- 
stone in Topenemus is the following inscription: 

JOHN BAIRD 

who came from Scotland 

in 1 8th year of his age, A. D. 1683 

died April 1755 

aged about 90 years, and 
of an honest character. 

The names of three of his children are known to us: 

[352] 



THE BAIRD FAMILY 

2 i John Baird Jr., born 1707, died February 6, 1747, aged forty 

years and ten days, buried at Topenemus. 

3 11 David Baird, born Wednesday, October 19, 17 10, married 

Sarah Compton. 
in Zebnlon Baird, born in 1720, died January 28, 1804, aged 
eighty-eight years, three months, fifteen days. He and his wife 
Anna, who died December 28, 1794, aged sixty-three years, 
four months, eleven days, are buried at Topenemus. 

In the State Archives at Trenton, N. J., we found, under date, 
October 24, 1747, the marriage record of Rachel Baird and Daniel 
Logan, both of Monmouth County, New Jersey. It may be that she 
was kin to John Baird, either a daughter or granddaughter. 

SECOND GENERATION 

2. JOHN 2 BAIRD (John ), born 1707, died on February 6, 
1747, as above stated. 

The will of John Baird, dated February 5, 1747-8, probated July 
5, 1749, and recorded in Book E of Wills, page 310, in the State 
Archives at Trenton, N. J., names his sons Andrew and Zebulon, his 
wife, Avis Baird, and Peter Bowne executors of the will, and directs 
that the residue of his estate, after debts and expenses are paid, be 
given to his wife, Avis Baird, during her widowhood, and in case of 
her re-marriage be divided equally between his wife and children and 
family (without naming them). 

The above record evidently refers to John Baird, Jr., who died 
February 6, 1747, and was buried in the old Topenemus yard. An- 
drew Baird, on June 15, 1755, deeded his property to his brother, 
Zebulon. Andrew Baird and Zebulon Baird, of New Jersey, removed 
to Buck County, North Carolina, about 1755 or later. Andrew mar- 
ried there Anna, daughter of Mathew Locke. Zebulon also married, 
and among his descendants was Zebulon Baird Vance, the noted Gov- 
ernor of that State. The descendants of Andrew are numerously 
found throughout the South. We think they were the two sons of 
John Baird, Jr., named in the above quoted will. 

3. DAVID 2 BAIRD, (John 1 ), born October 19, 1710, died June 

[353] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

20, 1801, married October 27, 1744, Sarah Compton, born April 18, 
1716, died May I, 1810. 
Their children were : 

1 Jacob Baird, born in November, 1744. He moved to Morris

FOURTH GENERATION 

4. CAPTAIN DAVID 3 BAIRD, (David 2 , John 1 ), joined the 
American forces at the time of the Rebellion against Great Britain as 
a private in the first regiment; first sergeant in 1776, promoted ensign, 
lieutenant, quartermaster, captain of militia in 1777, and also captain 
of light horse, Monmouth County, N. J., militia. Among his general 
military services during the Revolutionary War in the above capa- 
cities we have it from special family tradition that he served in the line 
at the battle of Germantown, was called with his company to the aid 
and protection of Toms River and the Salt Works several times and 
at Navesink Highlands, and served with General Dickenson's forces 
during the British March across New Jersey in several skirmishes, 
and at the battle of Monmouth June 28th, 1778. 

Captain David Baird was married three times. On February 27, 
1777, he married Rebecca Ely, who died on January 6, 1778. She had

one daughter, Rebecca. His second wife was a widow, Lydia Gaston, 
formerly a Tapscott. She died February 5, 1791, aged 36 years, sur- 
vived by her six children. On November 25, 1795, he married his 
third wife, Mary Edwards, born September, 1771, died June 22, 1840. 
She was a daughter of Thomas Edwards, lieutenant in the First Regi- 
ment, Monmouth Militia, and his wife, Elizabeth (Vaughn). She

O TRACE ancestors back to a great-grandson of Noah 
is not given to every family. More than ordinarily 
full of interest, therefore, is the tradition regarding 
the family of Read. According to one historian, As- 
chanaz, who was the son of Noah's grandson, was the 
founder of the family. Another historian devotes 
much space and time to exploiting another tradition, which is even 
more romantic — that the Read family may trace their ancestry back 
to Rhea. 

Rhea was a goddess, thus named on account of the benefits and 
patronage she distributed to all her votaries. The word would appear 
to mean power, and to be derived from "redan," to rule or govern. 

To claim a goddess for an ancestor is infinitely more interesting 
than to try, in a learned and roundabout fashion, to prove that the 
name Read is derived from some old verb, no matter how respectable. 
To be "the daughter of a hundred earls" is nothing in comparison to 
being the granddaughter, or grandson, although several times re- 
moved, of an Olympian deity. 

Rhea was a most powerful and important personage, being the 
wife of Saturn and the mother of Juno, Neptune, and the mighty 
Jupiter. 

One of the principal cities of Phoenicia was Raad, or Ruad, and 
some of the rulers of India have a title which probably originated 
from the same source — the title raja or rajah, meaning king or ruler. 
It may then reasonably be inferred that the Reads come of noble stock 
and were rulers of men. 

The family has been noted for the varied orthography of its 
name. For example, we have Read, Reed, Reid, Ried, Ride, Red, Rad, 



[358] 




[3591 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Raad, Rheade, Rheadus, Reda, Rada, Redha, Wrede, Whrede, Wada, 
and Wrade. 

The name was often altered for the sake of euphony or to suit the 
idiom of various dialects. It has also been more or less connected with 
other words, making a union of both definitions, as Ethelred, or Reed 
the Good; Conrad, or Reed the Powerful; Eldred, or Reed the Elder. 

Among the words derived from the same root are reign, regalia, 
reason, and rhetoric. 

The present different methods of spelling the word arise in a 
great measure from fancy ; there are not less than eleven orthographi- 
cal forms. 

The Puritan form was usually Reade, but in some cases, Reede or 
Rede. The Irish form was Reedha, or Redha, from which came 
"ready." The Scotch method was Raid. A Bavarian general, who 
fought against Napoleon at the head of the Bavarian troops, wrote his 
name Reid, while a soldier under Napoleon spelled the name Wrede. 

The mode of spelling the name in this country has gradually as 
sumed one of the three following forms : Read, Reed, and Reid. 

In Germany the name is very common and is abbreviated from 
Rhedarium. Some of the descendants of the Rhedariums undoubtedly 
found their way to Britain at the time of the Saxon invasion, and from 
them the stock sprung. 

Sir Reginald Reed is the first of the family of whom there is any 
account. He was distinguished in the Border wars, and upon the edge 
of Carter fell, a mountain between England and Scotland, is Reed's 
Square, thus named in honor of the knight. 

In the fifteenth century flourished Robert Reed, or Robin of 
Redesdale, as he was called. He was associated with the Earl of War- 
wick. This Robin was of sufficient importance to have a monument 
or figure of himself cut in high relief upon a rock; the figure repre 
sents a giant clad in armor. 

It is here, in Redesdale, that many scenes in Scott's novels and 
poetical works are laid. In the "Fair Maid of Perth" mention is made 
of the powerful clan, Chattan. Readeugh or Reideuch was a branch 
of this clan. This may have been the original name of the Read family. 

The portrait of a Peter Read, who was knighted by Charles V., 
at the siege of Barbary, can be seen in the council chamber at St. Giles, 
together with an account of the gift of his houses to defray the ex- 

[3601 



READ FAMILY 

penses of the ringing of the bells of St. Giles' Church every morning 
at four and every evening at eight. He married the Duchess of 
Brampton. 

The first of the name in this country was William Read. He 
came to America with Governor Winthrop, in 1630, and settled in Bos- 
ton. Colonel Read, son of Sir Thomas Cornwall, and grandson of the 
Lord of Shropshire, came in the same year. Colonel Read settled in 
Salem and was a prominent man in the colony. He held the rank of 
colonel about 1643. 

Another member of the family, who served in the Colonial Wars, 
was Captain George Read, or Reed. Bartholomew Read, with his 
three sons, was in the Revolutionary War. James Read, who com- 
manded a regiment at the battle of Bunker Hill, was the first briga- 
dier-general appointed by the Provincial Congress. 

One of the five signers of the Declaration of Independence who 
were also framers of the Constitution was George Read. He was 
tauntingly told that he signed the Declaration with a halter about his 
neck. Mr. Read replied that he was prepared for any consequences 
which might ensue. In September, 1776, he was president of the con- 
vention which framed the first Constitution of the United States. 

Mr. Read lived in great style at New Castle, Delaware, maintain- 
ing a state and etiquette peculiar to Colonial times. He always trav- 
eled in a splendid yellow chariot drawn by two bay horses. Two orig- 
inal portraits of "the signer" are extant. One was painted by Gilbert 
Stuart. 

The Father of his Country had the honor of belonging to the Read 
family, his great-great-grandfather being George Reade, who came to 
Virginia in 1637. 

Joseph Read, Washington's military secretary, was probably a 
relative. He was the man above all others, Washington excepted, who 
had the confidence of all parties at the time of the struggle for inde- 
pendence. Had his life been spared he would undoubtedly have filled 
the Presidential chair. General Read — to give him his title — in reply 
to an offer by the British commissioners of the most important office 
in the colonies, and £10,000 in cash, to act in the interest of the British 
government, said that the King of Great Britain had nothing within 
his gift that would tempt him. 

Reads, Reeds or Reids of the present day have no trouble in prov- 

[361]

ing eligibility to membership with different patriot societies — the 
Society of Colonial Wars, the Sons of the Revolution, and the Sons 
of the American Revolution. Through Sarah Warren, wife of Wil- 
liam Read, and lineal descendant of Richard Warren, one of the signers 
of the compact, membership with the Mayflower Society may be 
claimed ; a membership which is most highly prized. 

Among Reads who have won distinction as authors and preachers 
is Hollis Read, who wrote "The Hand of God in History" and "Read's 
Researches." The Rev. John Reed, who was born in 1673, was famous 
for his ready wit. It is related in the Connecticut Historical Collec- 
tions : 

A Mr. Walker and Mr. Reed were both preaching at Hartford. 
At the time a controversy arose as to which of the ministers should 
go as missionary to the little settlement of Woodbury. The men were 
requested to deliver sermons on the day when the matter was to be 
decided. Mr. Walker took as his text: "What went ye out into the 
wilderness to see — a reed shaken with the wind?" He enlarged upon 
the propriety of a reed being found in the wilderness. Mr. Reed took as 
his text, "Your adversary, the devil, walketh about seeking whom he 
may devour." He stated that the adversary of man was a great 
walker, and, instead of remaining with the brethren, ought to be kept 
walking at a distance from them. 

The result was that Mr. Reed came off victorious and retained 
his place at Hartford. 

He was a large landowner; some of his property he purchased 
for "two coppers per acre" — this was in the township of Ware, in 
Massachusetts. Another township which he owned he called the Man- 
or of Peace. Although a minister of the gospel — and renowned for 
his piety — he was also one of the most distinguished lawyers of his 
time. He was called "Leather- Jacket John," from the fact that he was 
a famous pedestrian and always wore a leather jacket upon his long 
tramps. 

The arms borne by Colonel John Read of Delaware, and his son, 
George, the signer, here shown, are: Gules, a saltire between four 
sheaves, or. 

Crest: On the stump of a tree, vert, a falcon rising, proper, 
belled and jessed, or. 

Motto: Cedant arma togae — "Let arms yield to the gown." 

[362] 



READ FAMILY 

Equabiliter et diligenter is another Read motto. 

For the family of James City County, Virginia, the arms are: 
Azure, guttee d'or, cross-crosslet, fitchee, of the last. 

Crest: A shoveller, close, sable. 

George Read, born in England, came to Virginia in 1637, where 
he became secretary of state. From 1649 to l ^S^ he was a burgess. 
He married Elizabeth, daughter of Captain Nicholas Martian, of 
York County, and they had seven children. He died in 1671.

FIELD may be quite as much a member of this well- 
known and widespread family if he elect to write him- 
self down Field, Feeld, Field, Ffeild, Ffeld, Fellde, 
Feyld, or Fylde. He may even try such variations as 
del Felde and de la Feld. The last named is perhaps 
the earliest form of the name, now recognized as 

Delaf ield. The present spelling, Field or Fields, has been in vogue for 

two centuries. 

If the name originated in England, the meaning would be self evi- 
dent. Feld, used by Chaucer, was the past participle felled of the verb 
to fell. Fieldland is opposed to woodland, and means land where the 
trees have been felled. The name then would originate with him who 
owned fieldland. 

The tradition, however, is that the ancestor of the English Fields 
went over with the Conqueror, that he was Huburtus de la Field, of 
the Chateau de la Feld in Alsace. What would family history be 
worth without its traditions? They suggest a train of charming 
fancies, and don't harm any one. 

Field, as a matter of fact, sounds like a good old Saxon word. 

"Ing, hurst and wood, wich, sted and field, 
Full many an English surname yield." 

is an old rhyme ; so is this one — an epitaph, which is centuries old : 

"Here lieth Jack meadow, 
Whose dayes passed away like a shadow. " 
"N. B. — His proper name was Field, but changed for the sake of 
the rhyme."

It is little waifs like these which you come across now and then 
when running down your forefathers, which keep up your spirits. 
Otherwise the subject might be depressing — to think that your ances- 
tors are all, or mostly all, dead ! 

One record begins with William Field and his wife, Katharine, 
who were living in Yorkshire, in 1480. Connection is claimed by one 
branch with Sir Kay, a Knight of Arthur's Round Table, through 
Rosamond, daughter of William Field, who married, 161 7, Godfrey- 
Kay, a descendant. 

Queen Elizabeth's chaplain was Dr. Richard Field. The family 
claim connection with Cromwell, through the marriage of Anne, 
daughter of Thomas Cromwell, a grandson of Oliver, to John Field, 
of London. 

Among the distinguished members of the family is Sir John Field, 
who thirteen years after the death of Copernicus published the first 
astronomical tables that ever appeared in England, calculated on the 
basis of the new discoveries. He was therefore the first to introduce 
the Copernican system into England. 

Another John Field, born about two centuries later, was a musical 
composer, whose nocturnes were Chopin's models. A dramatist of 
renown of the Elizabethan age was Nathan Field. 

The notable ones of a later day are the poet, Eugene Field ; David 
Dudley Field, who has done more for the reform of national laws than 
any other person ; George Field of Providence, R. I., whose stately and 
dignified bearing caused him to be called the "Old Roman," and the 
"Cato of the Senate." Of course, we do not forget Cyrus and "how 
he laid the cable." John Bright called him the "Columbus of modern 
times, who by his cable has moored the new world alongside of the 
old." Only the fact that Cyrus Field was the citizen of another country 
prevented him receiving high honors from the English nation. The 
Paris exposition of 1867 gave him the highest prize it had to bestow 
— the grand medal. King Victor Emanuel of Italy decorated him; 
America gave him a gold medal and the thanks of the nation; the 
city of New York presented thanks, a gold snuffbox, and the freedom 
of the city; the Chamber of Commerce of New York, thanks and a 
gold medal ; the State of Wisconsin a gold medal, and George Peabody 
a silver service. These were a few of the testimonials bestowed upon 
the layer of the cable. 

[3661 



FIELD FAMILY 

The first of the name here was probably Zachariah, who came 
from Suffolk and was one of the founders of Hartford, his name ap- 
pearing upon the record, 1639. Robert, a Long Island settler, about 
six years later, was from Yorkshire, a man of affairs, and one of the 
founders of Flushing. 

The Fields had their share of adventures in the early days ; they 
were scalped by Indians ; carried captive to Canada ; and one makes us 
her debtor for a romantic story, by marrying an Indian chief whom 
no persuasion could ever induce her to abandon. Benjamin Field of 
the Flushing family, in 1691, married Hannah Bowne, of the well- 
known pioneer family. Hannah was a cautious young woman, judg- 
ing from the following letter to her parents : 

"My Dear Father and Mother: — I may acquaint you that one 
Benjamin Field has tendered his love to me. The question he has 
indeed proposed is concerning marriage, the which as yet I have not 
at present rejected, nor given much way to, nor do I intend to proceed, 
nor let out my affections too much towards him, till I have well con- 
sidered the thing, and have yours and my friends' advice and consent 
concerning it." 

Strongly marked features are characteristic of the family, with 
keen blue eyes and sandy or brown hair. The Fields have tempers of 
their own and stubborn wills. Their integrity of purpose and indomit- 
able independence indicate antecedents of a haughty race, unaccus- 
tomed to servility. 

William, James, Jeremiah, Zachariah and Daniel are names which 
occur in every generation. A very curious Christian name which a 
Field bestowed upon a helpless, unoffending offspring was "Above- 
hope." Abovehope apparently could not appreciate a joke, or the dis- 
tinction of possessing a name unique in the annals of nomenclature, 
for she passed away from this wicked world at an early age. Perhaps 
she died of her name, not having the sense of humor which distin- 
guished her parents. An equally meek name was that of another 
feminine Field — Submit. 

If any one doubts the patriotism of the Fields — but no one does — 
let him be told that they fought at Bunker Hill ; they suffered at Val- 
ley Forge, and they witnessed the surrender at Yorktown. Captain 
Timothy was on Washington's staff. Others, good and true, were 
Lieutenant Ebenezer, Massachusetts; Ensign Nathaniel and Captain- 

[367] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Lieutenant John, Rhode Island ; Captain James, South Carolina ; Cap- 
tains Reuben and Benjamin and Lieutenant Henry, of Virginia. 

The arms illustrated, borne by the pilgrim, Robert, of Flushing, 
are blazoned : Sable, a chevron between three garbs, argent. 

Crest : A dexter arm, issuing out of the clouds, f essways, proper, 
habited gules, holding on the hand a sphere, or. 

Motto: Sans Dieu rien — "Nothing without God." 

This coat-of-arms is termed in heraldry, "canting," meaning a pun 
on the name, or "armies parlantes," because of the allusion to a pro- 
duct of the field — wheatsheaves. The simplicity of this coat-armor 
points to great antiquity. It perhaps goes back to the thirteenth cen- 
tury, when the most ancient roll of arms was made, or 1240. The 
crest was granted in 1558, when Sir John, astronomer, was authorized 
by the crown to bear as a crest, over his family arms — three wheat- 
sheaves — an arm gules, bearing a sphere, or. There was reason, if 
not rhyme or poetry in this — a red, right arm issuing from the clouds, 
and holding a golden sphere, showing the splendor of the Copernican 
discovery — a light from the heavens above. 

Similar arms, borne by the Earls of Chester, are: Three garbs, 
or, granted in the thirteenth century. 

Zachariah Field of Hartford was entitled to coat-armor blazoned : 
Per chevron, or and vert; in chief, two dolphins, respecting each other, 
gules ; in base, a garb of the first. 

Crest: A dolphin embowed, per pale, or and gules, in front of 
two darts, in saltire proper, points upward. 

These coat-of-arms are found graven on the monuments of the 
Field family of centuries ago. The garbs in heraldry signify plenty, 
and that the first-bearer deserved well for his hospitality. They also 
denote that "The harvest of one's hopes is secured."

HE revocation of the Edict of Nantes in the Seven 
teenth Century drove much of the best blood of 
France to Germany, England and Scotland. At that 
time the tide of emigration had already set in strongly 
toward the New World and many of the Huguenots 
came thither. Among the New York families that 
are of this origin is that of Goelet. Driven out of La Rochelle where 
those of the name had lived for generations, the Seventeenth Century 
Goelets went first to Holland, being established there as early as 162 1. 

FIRST GENERATION 

FRANCIS GOELET, came to New Netherland, in 1676, bring- 
ing with him his son, Jacobus, who was then a boy of ten years. The 
father was lost at sea, on a return voyage to Holland, and Frederick 
Phillipse, the famous merchant of New York's early history, took 
charge of the orphan boy and brought him up to manhood. 

SECOND GENERATION 

2. JACOBUS 2 GOELET, {Francis 1 ) became well established in 
mercantile life in the city of his adoption and was one of the solid citi- 
zens of the metropolis of the New World. 

He married Jannetji Coessar who was also a member of a Hugue- 
not family, and died in 1731. 

His issue included : 

1 John Goelet. 

[369]

THIRD GENERATION 

3. JOHN 3 GOELET, (Jacobus 2 , Francis 1 ) followed in the foot- 
steps of his father in mercantile and in social life and added to the 
good record of the family and the high esteem in which it was already 
beginning to be held. 

He married, in 1718, Jannetji Cannon, daughter of Jean or Jan 
Cannon and died in 1753. See the La Grande and Cannon Families 
following, (I). 

His issue included : 
t Robert Ratsey Goelet, married Mary Charlotte Buchanan. They 
had one daughter, Elizabeth Goelet, who married, in 1843, Albert 
S. Kip. 
n Peter Goelet, born in 1727. 

FOURTH GENERATION 

4. PETER 4 GOELET (John 8 , Jacobus 2 , Francis 1 ), was born 
in 1727. He became one of the most successful merchants of New 
York and a man of eminent standing. His place of business was in 
Hanover Square, being designated according to the custom of that 
time by the sign of the Golden Key. He was at first in partnership 
with Peter T. Curtenius, but from 1763 onward carried on -business 
by himself, his name appearing frequently in the public journals and 
official records of the city as a man of prominence in mercantile life. 
He was conspicuous in all the activities of the time that commanded 
the attention of the foremost citizens of the Metropolis. 

He married in 1755, Elizabeth Ratse. She was a daughter of a 
wealthy merchant who had his residence in lower Broadway, near the 
Bowling Green, which locality was then the home of the leading men 
of the community. 

His issue included: 

1 Peter P. Goelet, born in 1764. 

FIFTH GENERATION 

5. PETER P 5 . GOELET, (Peter 4 , John', Jacobus 2 .. Francis 1 ) 
was born in 1764. He inherited considerable real estate and other 
property from his father and throughout his life steadily added to his 

[37o]

possessions. He brought the family into even more business and 
social prominence than it had before enjoyed. He became one of the 
leading citizens of New York in the post-revolutionary period and was

SEVENTH GENERATION 

7. ROBERT 7 GOELET, (Robert 6 , Peter P\, Peter\ John\ 
Jacobus 2 , Francis 1 ), was born in New York City, September 29, 1841. 
Graduated from Columbia College in i860, he studied law and was 
admitted to the bar but his business and professional energies were 
devoted wholly to the care of the properties received from his father 
and uncle. He added much to his inherited wealth and his public 
spirit was evidenced in many ways in the development of his property 
to the beautifying of the city. He took an active interest in yachting 
and was a member of the New York Yacht Club, the Royal Clyde 
Yacht Club and the Royal Northern Yacht Club of Glasgow, Scotland. 
He was the owner of the steam yacht Nahma, one of the finest vessels 
of its class afloat. He was also a member of the Union, Knicker- 
bocker, Racquet, Metropolitan, Republican, Players, Tuxedo, South 
Side Sportsman's, Manuscript, Tandem and Philadelphia clubs, the 
Metropolitan Club of Washington, the American Fine Arts Society, 
the Holland Society and the Bar Association. He was one of the orig 
inal stockholders of the Metropolitan Opera House. He not only dis- 
played a notable degree of civic pride in the municipality with which 
his family has been so long identified, but gave useful lessons to other 
large real estate owners in New York of the advantage of taking into 
consideration features of improvement apart from any mere question 
of revenue. He was a director in some of the largest financial insti- 
tutions of the country, including the Chemical National Bank, and, 
while declining public life, took an active interest in national and city 
affairs. 

He married, April 17, 1879, Henrietta Louise Warren, daughter 
of George H. Warren, a distinguished lawyer of New York, and died 
in 1899 at Naples, Italy, on board his yacht Nahma. His widow, who 
survived him, resided in the New York family mansion in Fifth Ave- 
nue, also having residences in Tuxedo and in Newport. See Warren,

GOELET AND RELATED FAMILIES 

Jacobus 2 , Francis 1 ), was born June II, 1846. He was graduated from 
Columbia College in 18. Early in life he devoted himself to the busi- 
ness interests connected with his family, but later on gave himself to 
the enjoyment of the life of a gentleman of leisure. He was particu- 
larly interested with yachting, in which sport he was an enthusiast and 
which he did much to promote both in this country and in Europe. 

He married, November 8, 1877, Mary R. Wilson, eldest daughter 
of Richard T. Wilson, of New York, and died August 27, 1897 on 
board his yacht the Mayflower, at Cowes, Isle of Wight, England. 
See Wilson Family further on (viii). He was long a member of the 
New York Yacht Club and other institutions in this country for the 
promotion of the sport and owned at one time the fine schooner yacht 
Norseman and the cutter Samphire. In 1882, he gave to the New 
York Yacht Club the Goelet Cups, which are annually contested for 
by sloops and schooners, respectively, the possession of which are con- 
sidered the chief prizes of the American yachting world. For some 
years before his death he spent most of his time aboard, pursuing his 
favorite sport. He chartered the steam yacht White Ladye, in which 
he cruised in English water and in the Mediterranean, and was a mem- 
ber of the Royal Yacht Squadron, and of the principal Continental 
clubs. He also, while abroad, gave a number of handsome cups and 
prizes to be raced for at the important regattas, one of which was won 
in the Mediterranean by the famous cutter Britannia, belonging to 
the Prince of Wales. In 1896, he commissioned the noted designer, 
George L. Watson, to build for him a steam yacht representing the 
most advanced ideas that had yet been applied to the construction of 
such craft. This was the Mayflower, which was built on the Clyde 
at the works of the Messrs. Thompson, the builders of the New York, 
Paris and other celebrated ocean steamers, and was launched in No- 
vember, 1896. Many novel ideas were included in the machinery, 
fittings and adornment of the yacht, which was in fact a luxurious 
floating home for its owner. After the death of its owner, the May- 
flower was sold to the United States Government at the time of the 
Spanish-American War and did admirable service as a war vessel in 
Cuban waters. In subsequent years it became the Presidential yacht. 

Mrs. Ogden Goelet survived her husband, residing in her family 
mansion in Fifth Avenue, New York and Ochre Court, one of the 
most beautiful places in Newport.

William Swift £>mwt nnb Junior, of 
Sattimirfj, iMaasarijoMta 

flttangeti trout a B,t&tatt$ 9?atie in 1905 

BY 

FRANK ALLABEN 

FIRST GENERATION 

'ILLIAM SWIFT probably came to New England from 
Booking, County Suffolk, England (Savage, Ge- 
nealogical Dictionary, iv, 241), and appeared, before 
1634, in Watertown, Massachusetts, where he was a 
proprietor in 1636-7 (Bond's Watertown, 1, 5-96). 
"In 1636 William Swift mortgaged his house and 
lands in Watertown to John Haines, attorney to Andrew Coleman in 
England, to whom Swift had given his name as joint security in a 
matter where Roger Spring was the principal debtor" (Bond's 
Watertown, 11, 956, citing the Massachusetts Colonial Records of 1 
September, 1640). In 1637 Swift sold his Watertown estate to 
Thomas White, of Sudbury, Massachusetts (Bond, 1, 596; Savage, 

[19] 




THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

iv, 241-2), and probably removed to Sandwich, in the Plymouth Col- 
ony, where his death occurred a few years later. 

Savage states that William Swift died in January, 1644; but this 
is an error, as the inventory to Swift's estate was exhibited 30 January, 
1642 (1643, by present reckoning). His wife, Jean or Jane, survived 
him until 1662 or 1663. Judging from her will, it is possible that she 
was a second wife, and perhaps a widow before she married Swift, and 
that some of his children may have been by a first wife. 

The inventory of William Swift's estate is recorded in the Ply- 
mouth County Registry of Deeds, Plymouth, Massachusetts, volume l, 
pages 44-45; but the following was transcribed, in 1905, from the 
copy on file in the Registry of Probate, Barnstable, Massachusetts : 

"William Swift 1642 

"Letters of Administracon granted unto Jeane the wife of Willm 
Swift of Sandwich lately deceased. 

"An Inventory of all the goods and Cattells of the said Willm 
Swift exhibited the 30th of January Anno: Dom: 1642.

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

The will of Jean or Jane Swift, widow of William Swift, is 
recorded in the Registry of Deeds, Plymouth, Massachusetts, volume 
ii, part ii, page 16; but the abstract, given here, was made, in 1905, 
from the copy on file at the Barnstable, Massachusetts, Registry of 
Probate. 

The date of Jane Swift's will is "12 Day 8th month 1662," that is, 
12 October, 1662, begins, "I Jane Swift of Sandwich," is signed, "the 
mark of Jane Swift," and has the following probate note : Witnesses 
took oath as to the signature 3 March, 1662, and 7 April, 1664; 
recorded 30 May, 1665 (Delay owing to absence of first witness, Mr. 
John Vincent). Jane Swift names as legatees "Daniell Winges two 
sonnes Samuel and John," her "grandchild hannah Swift," her "grand- 
child Experience Allen," the "two children hannah Swift and Expe- 
rience Allen," "Mary Darbey," "hannah Winge the Elder" "40 sh. 
to his daughters," probably Daniel Wing's daughters, names Jedediah 
Allen and Experience Allen "his 3rd part of my estate," her "son 
Wm's. children," and Rest of Estate to "my Son Wm. whom I make 
my exequitor." 

Children of William Swift : 
j Hannah, probably, who married Daniel Wing and had sons, ( 1 ) 

Samuel Wing, (2) John Wing, and probably a daughter, (3) 

Hannah Wing, and one or more others. Daniel Wing appears in 

the inventory of his father-in-law as a small creditor. 
11 A Daughter, probably, who married Allen (perhaps the Robert 

Allen who appears as a small creditor in the inventory of her 

father's estate), and had perhaps, (1) Experience Allen and (2) 

Jedediah Allen, 
in Mary, probably, who married Darby (perhaps the John Darby 

who appears as small creditor in the inventory of her father's 

estate). 
2iv William Swift, mentioned in his mother's will. 

SECOND GENERATION 

2 William Swift (William 1 ) was probably born in England, 
and probably came over with his parents, first residing at Watertown, 
Massachusetts, as early as 1634, and later at Sandwich, in Plymouth 
Colony, where he became a man of some prominence, serving as 
Deputy to the Plymouth General Court in 1673, 1674, 1677 and 1678. 

[24] 



THE SWIFT FAMILY 

He died 7 January, 1705-6 (see inventory following), leaving a will, 
dated 15 December, 1705, and proved 29 January, 1705. This docu- 
ment is recorded in the Barnstable County Probate Office, Barnstable, 
Massachusetts, volume 11, page 217, from which the following tran- 
scription was taken in 1905 : 

"I William Swift senior of the town of Sandwich in the County of

Daughter Hannah Tobey." 
11 Temperance Swift, married Timothy Bourne. She is the second 
daughter mentioned in her father's will, "My Daughter Tem- 
perance Bourne," while her husband, "My son in law Timothy 
Bourne," her father names as his "whole and sole Executor." 
in William Swift, born 28 August, 1654 (Savage incorrectly savs, 
1650). 

[27] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

IV Ephraim Swift, born 6 June, 1656 (Savage), may have died 

early, as neither he nor any issue of his is mentioned in his 

father's will, 
v Mary Swift, born 7 April, 1659 (Savage), probably died early as 

her father's will does not mention her nor any issue by her. 
vi Samuel Swift, born 10 August, 1662 (Sandwich, Massachusetts, 

Records in The Genealogical Advertiser, volume iv, page 10), 

perhaps died early, as we do not find mention of him or of issue 

by him in his father's will, 
vii Josiah Swift, who by his father's will inherited "this house and 

Land I now live in and possess" — the homestead. 
viii Hester Swift, the third daughter mentioned in her father's will, 

"My daughter Hester Gibs," whose husband may have been the 

John Gibs listed in her father's inventory as a debtor to his 

estate. 
ix Jirah Swift, inheritor, by his father's will, of "Twenty pounds 

In Moveables." 
x Dinah Swift, "My Daughter Dina Perry," the last daughter 

and the last child mentioned in her father's will. 

THIRD GENERATION 

3 William 3 Swift (William 2 , William 1 ) is by Savage incor- 
rectly said to have been born 28 August, 1650 (Genealogical Diction- 
ary of New England, iv, 241-2). That he was born in 1654 is, indicated 
by the following: "1654 William Swift son of William Swift was born 
August 28, 1654" (Sandwich, Massachusetts, Records in The Ge- 
nealogical Advertiser, volume iv, page 12). He died prior to the date of 
his father's will, 15 December, 1705. As this William Swift was not 
an object of special interest in the research from the notes of which 
this paper is now arranged, no attempt was made to follow his career 
or discover other children than the four sons mentioned in their grand- 
father's will : 
1 William Swift, mentioned in his grandfather's will as "My 
Grandson William Swift, son of the deceased William Swift." 

11 Thomas Swift. 
in Josiah Swift. 

iv Ebenezer Swift. 

[28] 



THE SWIFT FAMILY 

The last given are mentioned in their grandfather's will as "the 
three sons of William Swift my son Deceased Thomas Swift Josiah 
Swift and Ebenezer Swift." 

4 Dinah 8 Swift (William 2 , William 1 ), mentioned as "My 
Daughter Dina Perry" in her father's will, may have been the young- 
est child and born about 1672, as her husband, Benjamin Perry (men- 
tioned in the inventor of her father's estate — "to one horse at Ben- 
jamin Perry" and "from Benjamin Perry due 6-0-0"), was born 15 
January, 1670. 

Their children were : 
1 Meribah Perry, born 11 June, 1695. 
11 Remember Perry, born 13 March, 1696. 
in Seth Perry, born 19 March, 1699. 
iv Benjamin Perry, born 19 March, 1699. 
v Susanna Perry, born 27 December, 1701. 
vi Abner Perry, born 10 March, 1703. 
vii Josiah Perry, born 18 October, 1709. 
viii Nathaniel Perry, 2 July, 1713. 
ix Eliakim Perry, born 8 May, 1716.

Holley, son-in-law of Elder Simon and Rebecca (Perry) Dakin, to his 
son, Rev. Horace Holley, which is confirmative of the preceding pedi- 
gree: "Your mother says that her great-grandmother's name was 
Swift, her grandmother's name Deborah Johnson, her mother's name 
Rebecca Perry ; that they were bred Calvinists ; that her father became 
a Baptist after he was married, and that he lived at Quaker Hill. 
Thence he removed to what was called Phillips' Patent, where the 
family were brought up. Then they came to Oblong, N. Y., where, as 
you know, he lived and died at an advanced age." 

The children of Rebecca Perry and Elder Simon Dakin will be 
given in an article on the Dakin family to appear later in this maga- 
zine.

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Recorder's Office, Lancaster Pa., Bk. U, p., 367. 

Henry Funk was residing in Manor Township in 1771, when his 
name was entered on the taxlist, as Henry Funk, Jr. (Pa. Archives, 
Series 3, Vol. 17, Returns and Assessments, County of Lancaster, 
1 77 1, in, "Manner Township"). In 1773 his name is entered as 
Hen'y Funk Jun'r m. (Pa. Archivs, Series 3, Vol. 17, 330, Returns 
for the County of Lancaster, Manner Township, p. 440). The Effec- 
tive Supply Tax, 1779, mentions Henry Funck (Pa. Archives, Series 3, 
Vol. 17, <c Mannor Township," p. 534.) The next tax list, for the year 
1782, has the name of Christ. Funk and Henry Funk placed together. 
This is the Christopher Funk to whom Henry Funk, as above stated, 
gave land. (Pa. Archives, Series 3, Vol. 17, Returns and Valuations, 
County of Lancaster, 1782, p. 742, u Manner Township"). 

The original tax lists for Manor Township, now in existence, go 
back only to 1780, and are not complete for every year thereafter. All 
the original lists in the County Commissioner's Office, at Lancaster, 
Pa., were examined. 

Henry Funk is mentioned in the lists for 1780, 1781, 1785 (no 
lists now exist for the intervening years. ) Two persons of the name of 
Henry Funk appear in the 1786 list and the 1787 list. Henry Funk is 
listed among the taxable residents of Manor Township, in an undated 
list, which is placed next to the 1787 list and is probably the list for 
1788. 

In 1789 a Henry Funk was taxed in Manor Township, and in 
1790 a Henry Funk also appears on the tax list. The next list, that of 
1793, has the name of Henry Funk. The list of 1799 is almost un- 
decipherable, and the name of Henry Funk is apparently not recorded. 
This omission is to be accounted for by the fact that Henry Funk had 
removed to the Borough of Lancaster, for in September, 1798, he is 
mentioned in a land transaction with his daughter and her husband, 
Magdalen and Jacob Stahl, as follows : 

"This indenture made the fifteenth day of September in the Year 
of our Lord One thousand Seven hundred and ninety eight Between 
Jacob Stahl Junior of Manor Township in the County of Lancaster and 
State of Pennsylvania Innkeeper and Magdalen his Wife of the one 
part, and Henry Funck of the Borough of Lancaster in the County of

Between the years of 1761 and 1782, when Henry Funk and his 
wife Martha gave land to Christian Funk, one transaction in the name 
of Henry Funk was recorded, as follows: 28 March, 1772, Philip 
Shertzer, for £150, sells to "Llenry funck Jr" of Manor Township, 
Lancaster County, a lot in Millersburg, Manor Township (Lancaster, 
Pa., Deeds, p. 159).

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

After 1782 Henry Funk is not known to have figured in any land 
transaction until that of 1798, given above, between Henry Funk and 
Jacob Stahl, wherein it is stated that Henry Funk was at that date a 
resident of the Borough of Lancaster. 

Henry Funk died between 22 March, and 23 May, 1800, the dates, 
respectively, of the making and proving of his Will, which follows :

From his Will, it is seen that Henry Funk's second wife was 
named Magdalen. His first wife, Martha, was living in 1782 (see deed 
of Henry Funk and wife, Martha, to Christian Funk, as quoted above). 
She was probably the mother of all but two of Henry Funk's children. 
She was the mother of Elder John 4 Funk, as the latter was old enough 
to have a son born in 1783. Martha was also the mother of Christian 
and Henry, as is proven, for the former, by the above cited deed to 
him from his parents, and as will be shown later in the case of Henry. 
In all probability she was the mother of the other children, with the 
exception of Daniel and Abraham, whom two records prove to have 
been the children of Henry Funk, and his second wife, Magdalen. 

[54] 



THE FUNK FAMILY 

Daniel was of an age to choose a guardian in 1802, and was prob- 
ably just over fourteen years of age, which would have made him born 
about 1787. The power of attorney which Abraham gave in 1803 (see 
below), shows that he was of age, and in this he calls Magdalen Funk 
his mother. He must, then, have been born soon after 1782, and would 
therefore have been older than Daniel, who is thus proved also the son 
of Magdalen. One of the records reads : 

"Daniel Funck a minor son of Henry Funck late of the Borough 
of Lancaster deceased, being above the age of fourteen years comes 
into Court and Chooses Joseph Carly Jr of Hempfield Township his 
Guardian accordingly." (Orphans' Court, Lancaster, Pa., Miscellane- 
ous Book 1801-1803, p. S3, "January I2tn 1802"). 

The power of attorney reads : 

" 1 Abraham Funck of Richland Township in the County of 

Fairfield and State of Ohio, one of the sons of Henry Funck late of 
the Borough of Lancaster in the County of Lancaster and State of 
Pennsylvania yeoman deceased Do make constitute and appoint James 
Philips and Henry Funck both of the County of Lancaster aforesaid 
my true and lawful Attorneys for me and in my name to ask — and 
receive the Share — coming to me the said Abraham Funk — in the 
Estate of the said Henry Funck deceased or out of the Estate of my 
Mother Magdalen Funk Widow and Relict of the said Henry Funk 
deceased at and immediately after her Death, — And it is hereby agreed 
between the said Parties — That this Power — of Attorney shall be irre- 
vocable until the said Abraham Funck his Heirs Executors or Admin- 
istrators shall have — paid — a certain Bond bearing even date herewith

The children of Henry Funk were the following, though, in most 
cases, the exact order of their births is not known. Their order, as 
given in their father's will, clearly does not indicate their order in age, 
for it has been shown that their father's first wife, Martha, was living 

[551

in 1782; that Abraham and Daniel were born of his second marriage, 
to Magdalen; and it would not have been possible for the three daugh- 
ters (married in 1800, as mentioned in Henry's will) to have been 
born between the date of birth of their brother, Abraham (shown, 
above, to have been older than Daniel, and born soon after 1782 — 
this doubtless, the first child of Henry Funk's second marriage), and 
still old enough to be married by 1800.

marriage to Magdalen, and born not long after 1782; removed 
to Richland Township, Fairfield County, Ohio, by 1822. (See 
document below, showing his mother's decease by 1822). 
ix Daniel Funk, as shown above, a son of Henry and Magdalen 
Funk, and younger than Abraham. 
Magdalen, the second wife of Henry Funk, had died by 5 October, 
1822, as shown by the following record.

FIRST GENERATION 



«t«W»^»: 




HOMAS BURGESS was born in 1603, according to 
the Joy MSS. possessed, in 1905, by Miss Mary G. 
Joy of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and written by her 
father, Captain E. C. Joy. He died between 4 April, 
1684, the date of the making of his will, and 7 Febru- 
ary, 1684-5, the date of the inventory of his estate, 
although the Joy MSS. state that he died on 13 February, 1685, while 
Savage (Genealogical Dictionary, volume 1, page 302) names 27 
February, 1685, as the date of death. His wife, Dorothy, died 27 Feb- 
ruary, 1687, according to the Joy MSS. and the Burgess Genealogy. 

Thomas Burgess is said to have arrived at Salem, Massachusetts 
as early as 1630, and to have lived for a while in Lynn. We have not 
seen proof of this early date, but find him in Duxbury, Massachusetts, 
in 1637. "Tenn acres of lands are granted to Thomas Burgess, lying 
on Ducksborrow side," 3 July, 1637 (Plymouth Colony Records, vol- 
ume 1, page 63). This grant was surrendered by him on his removal, 
in 1637 or 1638, to Sandwich, Massachusetts, where he was admitted 
a freeman, 2 June, 1640 (Plymouth Colony Records, volume 1, page 
155), became a member of the military company in 1643, an< ^ was a 
deputy to the Plymouth Colony General Court between 1642 and 1668 
(General Register of the Society of Colonial Wars, 1902, page 583). 
He was surveyor of roads, a chief man in the town, and one of the 
eleven male members of the Sandwich Church in 1649 (Waterman 
History of Sandwich, Massachusetts, in the Barnstable Patriot, 1883, 
article 2, page 12.) The fact that his grave is marked by a stone, said 
to have been "imported from England," led Amos Otis to the excited 
remark, "This was the only monument set up for any pilgrim of the

first generation." If Burgess was "of the first generation," where 
does Elder Brewster come in? 

The will of Thomas Burgess is recorded in the Plymouth County 
Probate Office, Plymouth, Massachusetts, Wills, volume 4, page 93. 
A copy of the Plymouth record is also on file in the Barnstable Probate 
Office, and from this copy the following transcription was made : 

"I Thomas Burge senr of Sandwich being through gods goodness

Children of Thomas and Dorothy Burgess: 
1 Thomas Burgess, styled in his father's will, "my eldest son 
Thomas Burg of Rhode Island." He must have been born in 
England, for he was married to Elizabeth Basset, at Sandwich, 
Massachusetts, as early as 8 November, 1648. "1648, Sana- 
widg Register for Marriages & Burials. Tho. Burgis married 
to Elizabeth Basset the 8th of November" (Plymouth Colony 
Records, volume 8, page 6). 
11 Elizabeth Burgess, who married Ezra Perry, of Sandwich, 

Massachusetts, 
in John Burgess, of Darmouth, Massachusetts, who married 8 Sep- 
tember, 1657, Mary, probably daughter of Peter Worden, 
second (The Joy MSS. and Savage, Genealogical Dictionary, 
volume 1, page 302). John is mentioned in his father's will as 
having a son, Thomas, 
iv Jacob Burgess, of Sandwich, Massachusetts, where he inherited 
his father's homestead. He married, 1 June, 1660, Mary, 
daughter of Benjamin Nye, and had a son, Thomas Burgess, 
mentioned in the will of Thomas Burgess, senior, 
v Joseph Burgess, probably the youngest child, is mentioned in 
his father's will and had a wife named Patience. 

SECOND GENERATION 

Elizabeth 2 Burgess (Thomas 1 ) married Ezra Perry, of Sand- 
wich, Massachusetts, on 12 February, 1652 (Joy MSS. and Savage, 
1, 302). The will of her father, Thomas Burgess, mentions "My son 
Ezra Perry" and makes him one of his executors. Elizabeth (Bur- 
gess) Perry died 26 September, 1717, according to the Joy MSS. For 
her children, see the sketch of Ezra Perry and some of His Descend- 
ants, elsewhere in this issue of The Journal of American Genealogy.

H. FRANCIS SMITH 

HIS name, which is spelled in a multitude of ways, ap- 
pears in England towards the end of the Sixteenth 
Century, but probably people by the name lived there 
many years before that time. There is mentioned a 
Radulphus Acorlie, who in 1568 married Alicia 
Wysdon, and in 1570 apparently the same Radulphus 
married Joanna Bishop. Also, in Shropshire, appears Thomas Acherly 
of Stanwardine, who had a son Sir Roger, "Lord Major [sic] of 
London." The latter spelled his name both Acherly and Ackerly. His 
Arms were listed in the Heralds' Visitation of Shropshire, 1623, pub- 
lished by the Harleian Society, as follows : 

Gules, on a fesse engrailed argent, between three griffin's heads 
erased or, three crosses patee f itchee sable. 

It is probable that these are connected, at least collaterally, with 
the American family, and the absence of the name in other parts of 
Britain tends to make it more certain. There are also names in the 
records very similar to Ackerly, such being Adderly, Atterly, Aderrey, 
Asheley, etc. There is a place in England called Acherly. 

The first of the name that came to America probably was Henry 
Ackerly, who was in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1640. The town 
records there mention him in several places, — as fined "for digging a 
cellar without the Town's permission, and selling- same," and also as a 
witness to several deeds. The name in the records is variously spelled 
Acorly, Akerly, Acerrely, and even Ayckriley. 

His wife's name was Ann, and he had a daughter, Mary, who 
married in Stamford, Connecticut, Vincent Simkins. They had sons, 
John and Daniel, the latter removing to Bedford, New York, where 
he died, in 1699. Mary Simkins survived her first husband, and 
married William Oliver. Nothing further is known of her. 

Henry Ackerly probably also had sons, of which little is known. 
Perhaps Robert Ackerly of Southold, Long Island, was his son; but 



[691 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

this has not been verified. Also Nathaniel Ackerly, who came "from 
Nova Scotia" ( ?), may have been his son. Nathaniel went to Ulster 
County, New York, where he had Jesse and others. 

FIRST GENERATION 

Robert 1 Ackerly appears in the town of Southold, Long 
Island, in 1651. He is the first definitely known ancestor of the 
Ackerly family of Long Island. According to the Town Records in 
Southold, he had a "whom" (home) lot immediately west of that of 
the Rev. John Youngs, the first minister. On April 29, 1652, he sold 
his dwelling and lot to John Elton ; and the records show that he was 
an extensive landowner. In 1657 Robert Ackerly and his wife, Isa- 
bella, sold all their remaining lands in Southold to Thomas Cooper, and 
then removed to Setauket, where he was the owner of many allotments 
and his name often appears in transactions concerning real estate. 
His wife was Isabella. When or where he died is not known. He had 
issue : 

1 Samuel, born in 1642; married Hannah. 
11 Lydia, married Richard Waring, of Oyster Bay. 
in A daughter (Isabella?), who married Jacob Longbotham. 

SECOND GENERATION 

Samuel 2 Ackerly (Robert 1 ) was with his father at the time of 
their arrival in Southold. He married Hannah, and had issue: 

1 Joseph, born in 1675; married Zipporah, daughter of Samuel 
Weekes. In 1700 and 1705 he is spoken of as late of "ye Pleas- 
ant Springs," i. e. Gibb's Patent, Islip. 
11 Benjamin, baptised as an adult at Huntington, Long Island, in 

I 733'y removed to Smithtown. 
in Robert, who married and lived at Brookhaven. 
iv Jacob. 

v Samuel, who married Hannah, and went to Huntington, Long 
Island. Samuel Ackerly perhaps had other children. 

THIRD GENERATION 

Benjamin 3 Ackerly (Samuel 2 , Robert 1 ) had issue:

i Moses, 
ii Benjamin, who married Sarah Dennis and probably went to 

Ulster County, New York. He was in Hempstead in 1744. 
in Arthur. 

iv Isaac, who married and had descendants, 
v Joseph. 

Benjamin probably had other children. 

Robert 3 Ackerly (Daniel 2 , Robert 1 ), issue: 

1 Nathaniel, probably the eldest son, born June 26, 1704; married 
Dorothy, daughter of John and Dorothy Tooker, about 1734, in 
Brookhaven. She was born February 7, 171 3. 
11 Philip, born September 29, 170-; married Joanna Leeke; died 

February 8, 1785. 
in Ebenezer, born September 20, 1713; died February 19, 1756 or 
1757. He was mentioned by Alexander Fordham, of Brook- 
haven as brother-in-law, the latter's sister, Hannah, having 
married Ebenezer Ackerly. Mr. W. S. Pelletreau says that she 
married Samuel, son of Samuel and grandson of Robert Ackerly, 
but as Hannah Fordham was born in 1707 and Samuel Ackerly 
had a son married in 1727, that becomes impossible,

v George, 
vi Robert. 

Samuel 3 Ackerly (Samuel 2 , Robert 1 ), married Hannah, perhaps 
Weekes, of Huntington and had issue : 

1 Abel, married Ruth Higbie.

Daniel and George were of Brookhaven, Long Island, in 1775. 
George and Robert, were of Sag Harbor, Long Island, in 18 13. 
John Akerly, was an enlisted man in the Revolution. 

Civil War records include : 
Ira W. Ackerly, from Huntington, Long Island. 
Joseph, from Northport, Long Island. 
Nathaniel S., from Northport, Long Island. 
Edwin, from Northport, Long Island. 
William N., from Northport, Long Island. 

The Ackerly family in New York City is believed to be descended 
from Henry, through Nathaniel Ackerly, who went to Ulster County, 
the said Nathaniel probably being the son of Henry Ackerly, of New 
Haven.

'ANY American families claim Alfred the Great as an- 
cestor. Possibly the Edward or Edwards family put 
Edward or Eadward, Alfred's son, in the centre of 
their chart, or rather, at the root of their genealogical 
tree. 

Certainly the Edwardses have been prominent 
enough in English history to shed a good deal of lustre upon the name, 
by whomsoever borne. 

Edwardes is another spelling. The name probably started out in 
life as Udward or Adf ert. In Anglo-Saxon records we read of Adf er- 
ton or Edwardes-tune, which means the enclosure of Edward. 

The name is an important one in Wales, where one branch claims 
descent from Tudor Trevor, a chieftain of mighty prowess. 

These are the Edwards of Sea Castle. Another branch is of the 
line of Roderick, the great king. "The Edwards Hall," as it is called, 
near Cardiff, Wales, has been the home of a powerful line of Edwards. 
It was built by Godefory de Pomeroi, a Norman knight, in William the 
Conqueror's time; it came into the Edwards family by marriage, and 
remained a seat until 1635. The ruins still stand. 

In England the noble houses of Kensington and Anglesey are of 
Edwards blood. Lord d'Elbceuf , a kinsman of the Conqueror, founded 
one branch of the family, with seats in Somerset, Cornwall, and Bed- 
ford. 

The title of Sir Herbert Edwards, a famous English general, 
indeed one of Britain's greatest generals of the nineteenth century, 
was an inheritance from an ancestor, knighted in 1644 by Charles I. 

The Lord Mayor of London in 1679 was an Edwards. An Eng- 
lish historian of note was Bryan Edwards. A fashionable sonneteer, 
ready rhymer and dramatist, was Richard Edwards, born 1533 m Som- 
ersetshire. He was a gentleman of the royal chapel, and "master of 

[85]

singing boys." His life was spent in England, although his death is 
recorded as taking place at Edwards Hall, Wales. 

It was his grandson, William, who was one of the first of the 
name in the New World. In 1646 he appears upon the records as a 
land owner in Hartford, Connecticut. He was one of the founders of 
East Haven. 

Daniel Edwards, of the fourth generation from William, the Pil- 
grim, was a member of the king's council for the colony of Connecticut. 

Timothy, born in 1669, of this line, was chaplain of the troops in 
the Canadian expedition of 1709. 

Captain James Edwards served with the Pennsylvania troops in 
the Revolution. He had the greatest affection for Washington, and 
on his deathbed said, "I shall soon meet my dear old General Wash- 
ington." 

Asked by his daughter if he thought that warriors like Washing- 
ton inherited the kingdom of heaven, he replied, "Yes, I believe that 
he is a bright star in the regions of glory." 

He was a Methodist, and so very religious that even a walk of 
forty-eight miles was attempted by him, in order to be present at a 
protracted meeting. Becoming weary, he dropped down by the way- 
side, and was seen sleeping by friends, who reported to another friend 
that he was perhaps drunk. "Oh, no," he replied, "he is only drunken 
with salvation. Take my carriage, drive down and bring him to the 
meeting." 

Benjamin, son of Hayden Edwards of Virginia, was a member 
of the State Convention of Maryland that ratified the Federal Consti- 
tution, and a member of the first Congress. His brother John was a 
member of the Virginia Convention that ratified the Constitution, and 
afterwards a Senator from Kentucky. Another brother, Sanford Ed- 
wards, was a surgeon in General Marion's army. 

Interesting relics of this branch of the family include the wedding- 
gown of Hayden's wife, Penelope Sanford. It is passed on to the 
Penelopes of the family and is now owned by one of this name. The 
dress is of beautiful material, and in a fairly good state of preserva- 
tion. Penelope Sanford was born in England, and came over with her 
brother, the only woman in a shipload of colonists, bound for Virginia. 

The Southern Edwards are related to the Popes. Other marriage

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

connections include the Harrisons — President Harrison's family — and 
the Eli Whitneys. 

Ninian, son of Chief Justice Ninian Edwards, the first and only 
Territorial Governor of Illinois, married a sister of Mrs. Abraham 
Lincoln. 

Chief Justice Ninian was born in Maryland, and was a gentleman 
of the old school, immaculate in his attire. Like Beau Brummell, he 
thought "we may not always be wisely, but we cannot be too well 
dressed." He wore fine broadcloth, and rode in a grand carriage, 
with a colored coachman in livery of the most correct description. 
When inaugurated, he was resplendent in a goldlaced coat. 

The world-famous one of the family is, of course, Jonathan, of 
whom the historian Fiske says, "He was one of the wonders of the 
world, probably the greatest intelligence the Western Hemisphere has 
yet seen." 

Bancroft writes, "Of all the scholars and philosophers produced 
by America, only two have established a permanent reputation — Ben- 
jamin Franklin and Jonathan Edwards." 

Jonathan was of the line of William, the immigrant. 

The stories of his precocity make interesting reading. At twelve 
years of age we find him writing a letter refuting the idea of the ma- 
teriality of the soul. His wife, Sarah Pierpont, called by her descend- 
ants "the ancestress of the beautiful eyes," was a charming woman, 
and Whitfield writes in his diary, "A more devoted couple I have never 
seen." They had near a dozen children — eleven, all told — of whom 
Mary was the favorite. Her choice of a husband was such a wise one 
that her father made it the subject of a sermon, from the text, "But 
Mary hath chosen the better part." This was something of a reflec- 
tion upon the choice, in the matrimonial market, of another daughter, 
who had not chosen so well or wisely. 

Mary married Timothy Dwight, and was the mother of a presi- 
dent of Yale College. 

The daughter, Sarah Edwards, was the mother of Aaron Burr. 

At Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the reunions of this branch of 
the family take place. Among the anecdotes retailed at these meetings 
one is of a letter Jonathan wrote to his son Timothy when at Princeton 
University. Timothy's orthography was at fault. He probably wrote 



EDWARDS FAMILY 

to his father, "I was very glad to receive your last letter," and forget- 
ting the little rhyme "i" before "e" except after "c," made a mess of 
it. Jonathan wrote back posthaste, "Next to downright immorality, 
I consider bad spelling the worst fault." 

"The Millennium, or The Thousand Years of Prosperity," by 
Jonathan Edwards, was "printed at Boston, in New England, 1747; 
reprinted at Northampton in Old England, 1789, and Elizabethtown, 
New Jersey, printed by Shepard Kollock, Printer and Bookseller, in 
1797." The original edition of this work is of great value. 

Characteristics of the Edwards are more than an ordinary share 
of good sense and intelligence, wit, conversational powers, prudence, 
good judgment. The men of the family are tall and strongly built, 
dignified, with polished manners. 

It is not down on the records that the family wish to claim the 
earth, but the "Heirs' Association" is formed to recover $300,000,000 
and the city of Troy ! Whether Troy, New York, or of the Iliad, or 
both, the writer cannot state. 

The arms reproduced, those belonging to the Pilgrim William, and 
his descendants, were granted by Edward III., to an ancestor, for 
prowess at the battle of Crecy, 1335. They are verified by the Her- 
alds' College, London. 

The arms are blazoned : Ermines, over all a lion, rampant, or ; in 
canton, a two-headed eagle. 

Crest: A demi-lion, rampant, or, holding between his paws a 
castle, argent. 

Motto: Sola nobilitas virtus. 

The Edwards of Kent and Shropshire bear the same arms, but a 
different crest. 

Burke blazons more than a score of arms for the family. One has 
for crest the three feathers of the Prince of Wales. A ducal coronet 
is the crest of another branch. There are also a variety of mottoes. 
That of one Welsh branch is "Everything with God, nothing without 
God." 

"Gardez la foy" is the motto of the Baron Kensington branch. 
Another is Nee f latu, nee f luctu — "Neither by wind, nor by tide."

1 ANNING is from an old Norse word — manningi — mean- 
ing a brave or valiant man, and one of the first forms 
of the name was Mannin; another orthography was 
Mannyng. 

One historian gives a Saxon origin for the 
family, which he calls "ancient and noble." Accord- 
ing to him, Manning was the name of a town in Saxony, and from 
thence the family of Great Britain sprung. Others make Mannheim, 
Germany, the cradle of the family, and begin its history, with Ranulph, 
or Rudolph de Manning, Count Palatine, who having married Elgida, 
aunt to King Harold L, of England, had a grant of land in Kent. His 
name is also written de Mannheim — Rudolph of Mannheim. 

His place in Kent was Downe Court, and there the Mannings 
have been a power ever since. Simon de Manning, called a grandson 
of Ranulph, was the first of the English barons to take up the cross, 
and go forth to the Holy Wars. He was a companion of Richard L. 
Cceur de Lion, and knighted on the battlefield. We can easily see 
where the cross, of the coat-of-arms illustrated, comes from. At 
Downe Court these arms are seen graven upon tombstones of the 
Mannings. But the thirteenth century the family was well represented 
in over a score of countries, and several towns bear their names — 
Manningham, Yorkshire, and Mannington, Norfolk. 

In the "new world" the Mannings have always been well repre- 
sented. In 1634, William of Kent, made a home at Cambridge, 
Massachusetts; about the same time we find John and Thomas at 
Ipswich; another John and George at Boston; in 1662, Nicholas at 
Salem, Massachusetts, and in 1676 Jeffrey Manning in New Jersey. 
The story of a forefather who "ran away" should come in right here, 
but details are lacking to make the story complete, and where he ran 
from or what he ran for must be left to the imagination. 

William of Cambridge is regarded as the ancestor of the Man- 

[90] 



MANNING FAMILY 

nings of Vermont, Connecticut, and New York. His grandsons were" 
Ohio pioneers. 

A few years ago, and perhaps at the present, the house Samuel, 
grandson of William, built at Billerica was standing; for 175 years it 
was the home of the Mannings, and possibly it, or the other, is still 
owned by the family. The house, a frame one, was built of brick on the 
north side, like all houses of the time. 

William, of Cambridge, and Susannah, his wife, had one son. 
William, born 1614, in England — perhaps their only child. He mar- 
ried Dorothy, and they had five children — two were sons. He was a 
surveyor, selectman, member of the grand jury, and one of the pillars 
of the church. When it was decided to call a new pastor, he was sent 
to England to ask Reverend Urian Oakes to accept the position, which 
he did, and later he became president of Harvard. To William Man- 
ning, Jr., and John Cooper was entrusted the task of collecting funds 
for the building of Harvard Hall. 

In 1635, Thomas and John Manning, born in England, were liv- 
ing in Virginia. Stephen Mannering (not Manning, although this may 
have been the correct spelling), in 1677, confessed, with others: "We 
have bin notoriously actors in ye late horrid rebellion, set on foot by 
Nathaniel Bacon/' We confess ourselves traitors and will never, no 
never do so again, is the sum and substance of the confession, al- 
not exactly thus worded. 

Mme. Washington, wife of Colonel John Washington, said to 
Manning, "If you had been advised by your wife you would not have 
come to this pass." "Madame," he replied, "if I were to doe, I could 
doe it again." We all admire his spirit, and, in passing, we ask, did 
any man ever follow his wife's advise; indeed, did he ever ask it? 

In Spottsylvania County, Virginia, Andrew and James Manning 
were living about 1770, and in Princess Anne County, Henry K. Man- 
ning. The family was prominent in South Carolina, where there is a 
town, Manning, in Clarendon County, Thomas Manning was one of 
the Council of Safety, South Carolina, in 1775. 

The picturesque figure of this story is Captain John Manning, 
whose career, on both land and water, was noteworthy. He was born 
in England. In 1667 we $ m d mm high sheriff of New York City, a 
judge, and a commander on the high seas, "fit for any employment in 
the militia," as the Earl of Clarendon wrote to the King. In 1673, 

[91]

MANNING FAMILY 

the Dutch fleet arrived with the enterprising purpose of annexing 
Manhattan Island. 

Demanding the surrender of Fort James, it was given up, and 
straightway Captain John returned to England to explain to the King 
how impossible it was to hold the fort with but a handful of men. The 
King, turning to the Duke of York, said, "Brother, the ground could 
not be maintained with so few men." Manning was thus exonerated, 
and returned to New York in the same ship with Governor Andros. 
At one time the Captain was fined twenty shillings, because it was 
said that he had traded with the Dutch, and his vessel was advertised 
to be "sould at Milford, on Tuesday next, at three o'clock in ye after- 
noon by an inch of a candell, he that offers most to have her." 

The Captain spent his last years on what is now called Blackwell's 
Island, New York City. He owned the island, and it was called Man- 
ning, or Manningham. His stepdaughter, Mary, married, in 1676, 
Robert Blackwell, and the island has since gone by this name. It is 
not known whether the Captain had any children. 

The family has its war record, and one to be proud of. Repre- 
sentatives are found in all colonial wars. Benjamin, Daniel, David, 
Thomas, and Samuel were among the number. Diah of Connecticut, 
was a drummer of Washington's Life Guards. Lieutenant Lawrence 
Manning, of the Continental army, was father of Richard Irvine Man- 
ning, Governor of South Carolina, where he was born, at Hickory 
Hill, Clarendon county. Governor Manning entertained Lafayette 
upon his second visit, and his wife is recorded as the wife, sister, niece, 
aunt, mother, and foster-mother of a governor. John Lawrence, son 
of Richard Irvine, was one of South Carolina's Governors, and his 
wife was the daughter of General Wade Hampton. 

Captain Ephraim Manning of Connecticut was in the "Lexington 
Alarm." Hezekiah, a soldier, who died in 1802, has the epitaph: 

"Praises on tombs are 
Trifles vainly spent, 
A man's good name 
In his best monument." 

As scholars the Mannings have few equals, and many have been 
bright and shining literary lights. The first "popular" history of 

[93] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

England was written by Robert Manning, in the time of Edward III., 
whom he calls "Edward of Inglond." 

Owen Manning, of the early part of the eighteenth century, was 
called the historian of Surrey. 

Thomas Manning, the explorer, visited Napoleon at St. Helena. 
He was a friend of Lamb, who mentions him in the "Essays of Elia." 
The family also has its statesmen — one of recent years having been a 
member of the Cabinet. The founder of Brown University, Rhode 
Island — or one — was James Manning, born 1738, in New Jersey. 

Marriage connections include the Ainsworths, Averills, Lock- 
harts, Dempseys, Frosts, Cheneys, Darbys, and Darlings. Favorite 
names are Alonzo, Anthony, Adella, and all the other names begin- 
ning with "A" ; Dorcas, Nancy, Elona, Lucius, and Unity, and all the 
other names beginning with "U"; Mahala, and other like unpro- 
nounceable names. 

The coat-of-arms illustrated is blazoned: Gules, a cross-flory, be- 
tween four trefoils, slipped, or. 

Crest: An eagle's head, sable, between two ostrich feathers, 
argent, issuing from a ducal coronet, or. 

Motto: Per ardua stabilis — "Steady in difficulties." 

A cross often denotes Crusader ancestry ; trefoils, peace, joy, and 
hope; an eagle, one occupied in high and weighty affairs; ostrich 
feathers, willing obedience. 

This coat-armor was borne by William Manning, of Cambridge. 
Burke gives several arms for the Manning family, but all are similar 
for the Kent, Sussex, Chester, and Norfolk Mannings. 

The Mannings of New York bear the same arms as the decend- 
ants of William — that is the one here illustrated. 

The bookplate of a William Manning is still extant. It is in a 
publication entitled "The British Theatre," dated London, 1791. The 
bookplate is quarterly ; azure and gules, a cross-flory, argent, between 
four trefoils, slipped, or. 

Crest: An eagle's head, sable, between two ostrich feathers, 
argent. 

It is suggested that William, owner of the bookplate, may at one 
time have lived in Virginia, and may have been the William Manning 
who, during the Revolution, was in correspondence with John Laurens, 
aide to Washington. Many of their letters have been preserved.

Y Grand Father and Grand Mother were born in Scot- 
land about the year T670; they were cousins and both 
of one Sir name, his name was John and hers was 
Janet. They lived, in their younger years, in or near 
Glascow, and in 1695 they left Scotland and settled 
in Ireland in the County of Down and Parish of 
Drumbo at a place called Knockbracken, where they lived in good 
circumstances and in good credit until the year 1734, when he removed 
with his family to South Carolina. 

We went on ship-board the 14th of September and lav wind 
bound in the Lough at Belfast 14 days. The second day of our sail 
my Grand Mother died and was interred in the raging Ocean, which 
was an afflictive sight to her off-spring. We were sorely tossed at 
sea with storms which caused our ship to spring a leak. Our pumps 
were kept incessantly at work day and night for many days; our

Mariners seemed many times at their wits end, but it pleased God to 
bring us all safe to land, which was about the ist of December. 

My Grand Father and Grand Mother had seven children, viz., 
Janet, David, James, Elizabeth, Robert, Mary and Gavin. 

The daughter, Janet, was born in Scotland and was married to 
John Fleming in Ireland. They had a large family of children born 
in Ireland. 

They brought seven children with them to this place, viz., Isabella, 
John, Elizabeth, James, Janet, Penelope and William. 

My Uncle John died in the year 1750, in a good old age. 

My Aunt Janet died in 1761 in the 66th year of her age. 

My Uncle David was married to Amn Pressley and brought to 
this place two children, viz., Sarah and Janet. My Uncle David died 
in the year 1759 in the 62nd year of his age. 

My Aunt Ann died in the year 1772 in the 67th year of her age. 

My Aunt Elizabeth was married to William James. They brought 
to this place four children, viz., Mary, Janet, John and William. 

My Uncle William died in the year 1750 in the 49th year of his 
age. 

My Aunt Elizabeth died in the year 1750 in the 47th year of her 
age. 

My Uncle Robert was married to Mary Stuart and had two chil- 
dren, viz., Mary and John. His first wife, Mary, died in Ireland. He 
married his second wife a short time before he left Ireland. Her 
name was Hester Jane Scot, and brought the aforesaid children to this 
place. 

My Aunt Hester died in the year 1756, about the 40th year of 
her age. 

My Uncle Robert died in the year 1758 in the 54th year of his age. 

My Aunt Mary was married to David Wilson and brought to this 
place two children, viz., William and John 

My Uncle David died in the year 1750 about the 50th year of his 
age. 

My Aunt Mary died in 1765 in the 58th year of her age. 

My Uncle Gavin was married when he came over Sea. 
It is to be remembered we did not all come over in one ship nor 
at one time. My uncles, William, James and David Wilson, and their 

[n8] 



WITHERSPOON FAMILY 

families, with Uncle Gavin, left Belfast in the beginning- of the year 
'32 and Uncle Robert Followed in '36. 

As I said, we landed in Charleston three weeks before Christmas. 

We found the inhabitants very kind. We staid in town until 
Christmas and were put on board of an open Boat with tools and a 
year's provisions and one steel mill. They allowed one broad hoe and 
one narrow hoe. Our provisions were Indian Corn, Rice, Wheaten 
flour, Beef, Pork, some Rum and Salt. 

We were much distrest in this part of our passage, as it was the 
dead of Winter and we were exposed to the inclemency of the weather 
day and night, and that which added to the grief of all pious persons 
on board were the Atheistical and Blasphemous mouths of our Pa- 
troons and the other hands. 

They brought us up as far as Potatoe Ferry and turned us on 
shore, where we lay in Samuel Commander's barn for some time, and 
the Boat wrought her way up to the King's tree with the goods and 
provisions, which was the first Boat, I believe, that ever came up so 
high before. 

Whilst we lay at Mr. Commander's our men came up in order to 
get Dirt-Houses, or rather like-Potatoe-Houses, to take their families 
to. 

They brought some few horses with them. They got what help 
they could from the few inhabitants to carry the children and neces- 
saries up, as the woods were full of water and most severe frosts, it 
was very severe on women and children. 

We set out in the morning and some got no farther that day than 
Mr. McDonald's, some got as far as Mr. Plowden's, some to James 
Armstrong's and some to Uncle William James'. The little cabins 
were as full that night as they could hold, and the next day every one 
made the best they could to their own places, which was the 1st of 
February, 1735. 

My Uncle Gavin was married to Janet Wilson, sister to David 
and Robert Wilson, (their Father's name was William and their 
Mother's name was Jane Witherspoon, sister to my Grand Mother). 
She died shortly after marriage and left no issue. He afterwards 
married Jane James, daughter of John James of Ox Swamp and 
brother to Uncle William James, and had by her a large family of 

[119] 



THE J0URNA1 OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

children. Uncle Gavin died in the year 1 773 in the 61st year of his age. 
My Aunt Jane died in 1774 in the 64th year of her age. 

Father's name was lames, he was my Grand Father's third 
child and second son. he was horn at the beginning of the present cen- 
tury and lived with his parents at Drumbo until he was 25 years old, 
when he was married to my Mother. Elizabeth McQuoid, daughter of 
Robert McQuoid, her Mother's name was Sarah Campbell. My Grand 
Father. Robert McQuoid, died in Ireland in the year 1728 in the ! 
year of his ace. My Grand Mother also died in Ireland in the 80th 
r of her age. 
My Father and Mother settled in Graba Parish, near the Cunning 
I Mill, where they lived about nine years, when they sold their 
privileges there in order to embark for America. 

My Father brought up his family to Grand Father's at Knock- 
bracken about the 1st of May and left us there and went and wrought 
at the Reed making trad until the 1st of September. 

They brought on ship board four children, viz.. David, Robert, 

John and Sarah, Sarah died in Charleston shortly after their arrival, 

i was the first buried in the Scotch Meeting House Grave Yard. 

It was the 1st of February when we came to the Bluff. My 

. and we children were still in expectation that we were coming 

to an ... eeabk "ace, but when we arrived and saw nothing but a 

— arid instead of a fine timber house, nothing but a very mean 

Dirt-House, our spirits quite sank, and what added to our trouble, the 

we had with us from Uncle William James' left us when he came 

in sigh of the place. My Father gave us all the comfort he could by 

telling us that we could get all these trees cut down, and in a short 

there would be plenty of inhabitants, and that we could see from 

se to boast 

While we w< . this place the fire we brought from Log Swamp

began to howl on all sides, we then feared being devoured by wild 
beasts, having neither gun nor dog, nor any door to our house, how- 
beit, we set to and gathered fuel and made a good fire, and so past the 
night. The next day being warm in the morning we began to stir 
about, but about mid-day there arose a cold Southwest high wind, at- 
tended by thunder and lightning, the rain quickly penetrating through 
between the powels, and brought down the sand that covered over, 
which seemed to threaten to cover us alive. The lightning and thunder 
were very awful and lasted a good space of time. I do not remember 
to have seen a much severer gust than that was. I believe we all sin- 
cerely wished ourselves again at Belfast, but this fright was soon over 
and the evening cleared off comfortable and warm. 

The boat that brought up the goods arrived safe at Kings-tree. 
People were much opprest in bringing their things, as there was no 
house there, and they were obliged to toil hard and carry them on their 
backs, — consisting of clothing, beds, chests, provisions, tools, pots, 
bowls, and at that time there were but few roads or paths, every family 
had to travel the best way they could, which was near double distance 
to some, for they had to follow swamps and branches as their guides 
at first, and after some time some men got such a knowledge of the 
woods as to be able to blaze paths, so that the people soon found out to 
follow blazes from place to place 

As the winter season was far advanced, the time to prepare land 
for planting was very short, yet the people were generally healthy and 
strong. All that could do anything wrought dilligently, and continued 
clearing and planting as long as the season would permit, so that they 
made provisions for the ensuing year. 

As they had few beasts a little served them, and as the range was 
good they had no need of feeding Creatures for some years. 

I remember that amongst the first things my Father brought from 
the boat was the gun, which was one of the Queen Ann's Musket, he 
had loaded with swan shot. One morning, when we were at break- 
fast, there was a travelling 'possum passing by the door. My Mother 
screamed out "there is a great bear." Mother and we children hid our 
selves behind some barrels and a chest at the other end of our hut, 
whilst Father got his gun ready and discharged the load at him, which 
caused the 'possum to grin in a frightful manner. Father at last 
ventured out and killed him with a powl. 

[121] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

Another circumstance which gave us much alarm was the Indians, 
when they came to hunt in the Spring. They came in great numbers, 
like the Egyptian locusts, but they were not hurtful. 

We had a great deal of trouble and hardships in our first settling, 
but the few inhabitants were favored with health and strength. 

We were also much oppressed with fear on divers other accounts, 
especially of being at some time or other massacred by the Indians, or 
bit by snakes, or torn by wild beasts, or of being lost and perishing in 
the woods, of whom there we're three persons who were never found. 

My Uncle Robert, with his second wife and two children, Mary 
and John, arrived here the last of August, 1736. He came in the fine 
ship called the New-built, which was a ship of great burthen, and 
brought a great many passengers, who chiefly came and settled here, 
and had to travel by land from Georgetown, and instead of being fur- 
nished with provisions, as we were, they had money given them by 
the public. When they arrived our second crop had been planted and 
was coming forward, but the season being very warm, and they much 
fatigued, many were taken sick with ague and fever, some died and 
some became dropsical and also died. 

About this time, August or September, 1736, the people began to 
form into a religious society, built a church, and sent to Ireland for a 
minister. One came whose name was Robert Herron, who staid only 
three years and returned to Ireland. 

In the fall of the year 1737 my Grand Father, John Witherspoon, 
took a disease called Rose-in-the-leg, which occasioned a fever of which 
he died. He was the first person buried at the Williamsburg Meeting 
House, which he had assisted to erect. 

About the same time my Father had a daughter, Elizabeth, that 
died, aged 3 years, born at the place called the Bluff, where he lived. 

My Grand Father was a man of middling statue, of a fine, healthy 
constitution, and some- what bow-legged. Fie was well acquainted with 
the Scriptures, had great volubility in prayer, and was a zealous adher- 
ent to the principles of what was called in his day, the Reformed 
Protestant Church of Scotland. He had also a great aversion to 
Episcopacy. 

It was his lot to live in a time of great distress to the persecuted 
church during the reign of James the Seventh of Scotland and Second 
of England. 

[122] 



WITHERSPOON FAMILY 

Being one who followed field meetings, he and some others of 
his kindred were much harrassed by the Papists. 

Yet, notwithstanding, if his younger years were attended with 
some trouble, he still enjoyed great peace and tranquility in after life, 
and had the comfort and happiness of living to see his seven children 
all creditably married and settled for themselves, and except the death 
of my Grand Mother, his beloved wife, he never knew what it was to 
part by death with one of his own immediate family, a blessing which 
few persons have granted to them, especially at his advanced age. 

In May, 1743, the Rev. Mr. John Rae arrived here from Scotland. 
He came upon a call which his congregation had sometime before 
sent to the Rev. Mr. John Willison of Dundee. Mr. Rae continued a 
faithful, zealous and laborous worker in this congregation until the 
year 1761. 

He being abroad on a visit up Black River, was taken sick with 
the pleurisy and died. The remains of this eminently pious man were 
brought down from Salem, where he died, and buried at the Church 
where he had for 18 years labored, being about 46 years of age. 
"Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith 
the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours ; and their works do 
follow them" ! 

I was born in Ireland on the 20th day of August, 1728, was my 
Father's second son; in my youth he taught me to weave, as he also 
taught my elder brother, David, to make Reeds. 

The family lived together at the Bluff until March, 1749. My 
Father then moved to Thorntree, a place situated between the Lower 
Bridge on Black River and Murray's Ferry on the Santee. 

I there went out and wrought at the weaving business with my 
Uncle Gavin Witherspoon, who lived at a place called Megart's (or 
Migerth?) Swamp, until the September following. 

I went next to overseeing for a Mr. Flemming, near Black River 
Church, 25 miles below King's tree, where I remained until January, 
1752, and then returned to my Father's. 

The reason of my return was that it had pleased God in the last 
awful epidemic, that prevailed in Williamsburg in the years 1749 and 
1750, usually called the great mortality, and which had carried off 
near 80 persons, many of them the principal people or heads of fam- 

[123]

ilies, — to remove by death my elder brother, David, and my sister, 
Jane, both in the year 1750. 

My Father being then in a very feeble and infirm state of health, 
and unable to attend to his own business, I left my own to take care 
of his. I remained with my parents until 1758, when on the 2nd of 
March, I married Elizabeth Heathley, a young lady then in the 18th 
year of her age, and settled for myself four miles below King's tree 
and near the river. I afterwards removed and settled one mile higher 
up the river nearer King's tree, in 1761, and immediately on the public 
road leading from that place to the Lower Bridge on Black River. 

There I had a more comfortable and healthy residence, and here 
also I expect to spend the remainder of my days. 

Our first son, James, was born on the 20th of March, 1759. 

Our second son, Thomas, was born on March 22nd, 1761, and died 
on 8th September, 1765, aged 4 years and 6 months. 

Our first daughter, Ann, was born January 4th, 1763. 

Our third son, John, was born January 20th, 1765, and died on 
the 24th of July, 1769, aged 2 years and 6 months. 

Our fourth son, Robert, was born January 29th, 1767. 

Our second daughter, Mary, was born March 20th, 1769. 

Our third daughter, Elizabeth, was born July 25th, 1771. 

Our fifth son, John, was born March 17th, 1774. 

Our sixth son, Thomas, was born July 23rd, 1776. 

My honored Mother departed this life on the 23rd day of January, 
1777, in the 72nd year of her age, and was the last surviving branch 
of the old stock of our family. 

As I have had an intimate personal knowledge of their lives and 
deaths, I bear them testimony that they were servers of God, were 
well acquainted with the Scriptures, were much engaged in prayer, 
were strict observers of the Sabbath, — in a word, they were a stock of 
people that studied outward piety as well as inward purity of life. 

Indeed God blessed this settlement at first with a number of em- 
inently pious and devoted men, out of whom I choose to set down some 
of their names, viz., William Wilson, David Allen, William Hamilton, 
John Porter, William James, David Wilson, John James, James Mc- 
Cleland, Robert Pressly, Robert Wilson, James Bradley, John Lemon, 

[124] 



WITHERSPOON FAMILY 

William Frierson, — to whom I add my own Father, and my three 
Uncles, David, Robert and Gavin. 

These were men of great piety in their day. Indeed they were 
men of renew n. 

May the glorious King and Head of His Church, for His own 
glory, still maintain and keep up men of piety and holiness as a blessing 
to this place and congregation, to the latest posterity, is the heart re- 
quest of the unworthy scribe.

FIRST GENERATION 

LLEN 1 LEEPER was born in County Down, Ireland., 
about the year 1720 (Family tradition; note by E. A. 
Leeper of Fort Recovery, Ohio, on copy of Allen 3 
Leepers diary). We find him in Lancaster County, 
Pennsylvania, in 1744, in which year he obtained from 
the Proprietaries a grant of one hundred acres of 

land in Pennsborough Township, of which we have the following" 

record : 

"Pennsylvania, ss: 

"BY THE PROPRIETARIES. 

"WHEREAS, Allen Leiper of the County of Lancaster hath re- 
quested that we would grant him to take up one hundred Acres of 
Land adjoining the land of James Denning situate in Pennsboro Town- 
ship in the said County of Lancaster for which he agrees to pay to 
our Use the sum of Fifteen Pounds Ten Shillings, current Money of 
this Province, for said one Hundred Acres and the yearly Quit-Rent 
of One Half-penny Sterling, for every Acre thereof 

"THESE are, therefore, to authorize and require you to survey 
or cause to be survey'd unto the said Allen Leiper at the Place afore- 
said, according to the Method of Townships appointed, the said 
Quantity of one hundred Acres, if not already survey'd or appro- 
priated, and make Return thereof into the Secretary's Office, in order 
for further Confirmation ; for which this shall be your sufficient War- 
rant; which Survey, in Case the said Allen Leiper fulfil the above 
Agreement, within six Months from the Date thereof, shall be valid, 
otherwise void.

Ten years later he obtained a further grant of fifty acres, situated 
in the same locality. Between the dates of these two grants the 
nomenclature of the county had undergone a change, owing to its sub- 
division. That part of Lancaster County where Allen Leeper had 
settled, had been erected into Cumberland County, and Pennsborough 
Township had been divided into East and West Pennsborough (See 
County history at end).

The next deed on record, of the disposal of the real estate of Allen 
Leeper, is that of a piece of land adjoining the Springer tract, which 
Allen had acquired one month before the grant of that tract, as appears 
by the deed, of which the following is an abstract : 

[134] 



LEEPER FAMILY 

1 6 December, 1796. "Charles Leeper Esquire of Roxbury Town 
Franklin County and State of Pennsylvania & Margaret his wife" for 
$700 sell to "Alexander Lacky of Frankford Township Cumberland

County of Cumberland adjoining lands of George Lefever William 
Patton Charles Porte Ewing & Lands formerly Alan & the said

thence by Benjamin McKeeghan formerly Charles Leeper 

thence by formerly Allen Leeper now Alexander Lackey," it having 
been "surveyed to the said Charles Leeper in Trust for the Heirs of 
Allen Leeper late of Westpennsboro Township County of Cumber- 
land & state aforesaid deceased in pursuance of a warrant granted to 
him dated at Philadelphia 15th day of April 1786." Signed, "Charles 
Leeper," "Margrat Leeper." (Ibid, Book M, pp. 178-9). 

Before 181 7 Alexander Lecky had died, leaving as his executors 
Daniel and George D. Lecky, who sold the Springer Tract, with the 
rest of the adjoining land belonging to Alexander Lecky, to various 
parties, the records of the sales being as follows : 

1 April, 181 7, Daniel and George D. Lecky, for $1,504, sold to 
Alexander Glenn of West Pennsborough Township 19 acres, 39 
perches of land in said Township, bounding lands of Atcheson Lough-

patented to "Allen Lieper," etc. (Ibid, Vol. 1, Book LL, p. 517). 

1 April, 181 7, Daniel and George D. Lecky, for $360.22, sold to 
William McCandlish of Newville 5 acres, 85 perches of land in West 
Pennsborough, bounding Atcheson Loughlin's land, being part of the 
tract "Springer," 116% acres, patented to Allen Leeper and acquired 
from his executors by the late Alexander Leckv (Ibid, Book HH, p.

[135] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY

77 perches of land in West Pennsborough, bounding lands of Atcheson 
Laughlin, Jacob Myers, the heirs of William McCandlish, Alexander 
Glenn, Abraham Refsnyder, and David Bear; being parts of two ad- 
joining tracts of land the late Alexander Lecky died seized of (Ibid,

of beginning; being part of 116^4 acres patented to Allen Leiper 18 
May, 1786 (Ibid, Book H, pp. 523-5). 

We now retrace our steps to the beginning of the partition of the 
Springer Tract, to bring in another portion of it, sold to Alexander 
Glenn, and from him passing through the hands of his heirs to Atchi- 
son Laughlin and then to Alexander Lecky, thus being merged once 
more with the original estate. 

13 December, 1842, Atchison Laughlin of West Pennsborough 
Township, Cumberland County, for $808, sold to James Davidson of 
the same Township 16 acres of land in West Pennsborough Township;

31 October, 1793, by James and Charles Leiper, as executors of Allen 
Leiper; being part of 116% acres patented to the said Allen Leiper 18

ship, for $11,183.25, sold to Dr. David Ahl of Newville, 172 acres, 8

borough of Newville, states that the deceased died seized of real estate, 
including "All that certain tract of land situate in the Township of 
West Pennsborough . . . Bounded and described as follows. On the 
North by State road and land of William M. Glenn; on the East by 
land of Prospect Hill Cemetery ; on the South by land of Rev. R. Mc- 
Cochran ; and on the West by land of Rev. R. McCochran and William 
Patton ; containing one hundred and fifty acres be the same more or 
less." (Ibid, Orphans' Court Docket, Vol. 22, p. 84). 

A report to the Court shows that the above tract was sold 17 
October, 1879, t0 W. F. Sadler, Esq., for $3,728.04. (Ibid, p. 154). 

30 March, 1882. W. F. Sadler and wife, for $6,448.38, sold to 
Jacob R. Weaver of West Pennsborough Township, the above men- 
tioned tract, 149 acres, 26 perches, "Beginning at a stone on the State 
road at the corner of land lately of the same tract, now of William 
Patton, thence by the State road and land of Wm. M. Glenn," north

Hill Cemetery, Benjamin F. Seitz, the heirs of Robert McCochran and 
land of William Patton to place of beginning. (Ibid, Vol. 7, Book L, 
pp. 258-60). 

By reference to the will of Allen 1 Leeper it will be seen that he 
mentions five children, three sons and two daughters, all of whom 
were married at the time of their father's death. Another son, William 

[138] 



LEEPER FAMILY 

Leeper, is named by a descendant of Allen 1 Leeper. The dates and 
order of their births are not known. 
Children : 
i Allen Leeper; received his share of father's estate during fa- 
ther's lifetime; mentioned in will of father; had son, James 
Leeper, who was co-heir of his grandfather (see will, given 
above).

Pennsylvania,

who was co-heir under his grandfather's will (see will, given 
above), 
v A daughter ; married Thomas Ewing and had son, John Ewing, 
who was co-heir under his grandfather's will (see will, given 
above), 
vi William Leeper ; of whom below. 

SECOND GENERATION 

James 2 Leeper (Allen 1 ) of Southampton Township, Cumberland 
County, Pennsylvania, was co-executor with his brother, Charles, of 
his father's will (see will, also deeds of administration quoted under 
Charles Leeper). He is named as "freeman" of West Pennsborough 
Township in 1774 (see copy of Tax Roll at end), his name appearing 
on the records of that place until 1779 (Ibid). In 1783 we find him 
as a taxable of Hopewell Township (Ibid), Cumberland County, and 
in 1793 in Southampton Township, Cumberland County (Ibid). This 
does not mean that he had moved from Hopewell Township, as might 
at first appear. That part of Hopewell Township in which James 
Leeper owned land and resided for a time, was set off into Southamp- 
ton Township, according to the following deed. 

9 November, 1793. " James Leeper of Southampton Township 
in the County of Cumberland and State of Pennsylvania Miller and 
Mary his wife" for £900 sold to "Samuel Allen Rippey and Joseph 
Duncan both of the Town of Shippensburg .... Merchants" .... 
a "certain Messuage or Tenement Merchant Mill and Saw Mill Planta-

tion and tract of land situate in Southampton Township," bounding 
lands of John McCulloch, David Glen, James Beatty, William Reed 
(formerly), and Matthew Henderson; 164 acres part of a tract form- 
erly "in the Township of Hopewell, but now in the Township of South- 
ampton," which on 7 April, 1789, Butler and Miflin, attorneys for 
John Penn, the younger, and John Penn, the elder, granted to the said 
James Leeper in fee (Deeds, Cumberland County, Book K, Vol. 1, p. 
20). The deed of the said Penns, by their attorneys, transferring the 
above described tract of 164 acres to "James Leiper of Hopewell Town- 
ship in the County of Cumberland in Pennsylvania .... Miller," 
7 April, 1789, is recorded on pages 20 to 22 of the above cited Book of 
Deeds. 

In the Pennsylvania Archives, Fifth Series, Vol. 6, p. 196, at the 
close of Captain James Irwin's report of the 2nd battalion, Cumber- 
land County Militia, Revolutionary War, there is the following foot- 
note: "James Leiper leatly from Carolina he fled from the Enemy's 
Country." This may, or may not apply to the above James Leeper. 
From the record quoted above we learn that his wife's name was 
Mary, but we have record of only one child, Allen, as follows : 

"At an Orphans Court held at Carlyle the tenth day of August in 
the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety one * * * 
"Came into Court Allen Leeper Grandson of Allen Leeper deceased 
above the age of fourteen years & prayed the Court to appoint his 
father James Leeper of Hopewell Township Guardian over his person 
& estate being a legacy left him by his Grandfather the said Allen 
Leeper deceased during his minority or untill another Guardian be 
chosen in his room. The Court do thereupon appoint the said James 
Leeper Guardian over the estate of the said Allen Leeper during his 
minority or untill another Guardian he appointed in his room. 

"By the Court." — Clerk's Office, Carlisle, Cumberland County, 
Pennsylvania, Orphans' Court Docket, Volume 3, page 95. 
Child: 
1 Allen, probably born in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, 
about 1775.

ARTIN is a Norman name meaning warlike. 

William Martin of Tours went over with the 
Conqueror, as a general in the Norman army. To his 
share fell the barony of Cemmes, or Kemeys, in 
County Pembroke, and he became Baron of Kemeys, 
and aiso Lord of Combe-Martin of Martinshoe in 
Devon. He had one son, Baron Robert Fitz-Martin (or "son of Mar- 
tin"), who married Maud Peverell. 

They had a son — Baron of Darlington, Devon, who left sons, 
William and Oliver, and from William, second Baron of Darlington, 
born 1 1 60, all of English lineage, bearing the name Martin, are de- 
scended, and from Oliver, who settled in Galway, are descended all of 
the Irish lineage. 

No sooner had Martin de Tours acquired vast estates than he 
devoted a portion of his wealth to the founding of a monastery for 
Benedictine monks at St. Dogmael's near Cardigan. This monastery 
was dedicated to St. Segwell, and was annexed as a cell to the Abbey 
of Tyrone in France. This institution was endowed with lands by 
Robert Fitz-Martin, the son of the founder. 

Martin de Tours and his successors were summoned to the King's 
council, as barons of Cemmaes, and continued to be lords in the Eng- 
lish Parliament. The third baron married Augharad, daughter of 
Rhys, Prince of Wales. 

In the reign of Henry II., William Martin, a lord of Cemmaes, 
was sent with the Abbot of St. Augustine and other persons of note 
into different counties of England to make inquisition touching the 
behavior of all sheriffs, bailiffs, and other officers, likewise of all 
archbishops, abbots, friars, earls, barons, vavasors, knights, citizens, 
and burgesses. 

In 1245 Nicholas, the fifth lord of Cemmaes, for services to the 

[143] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

King, obtained license for a market every week and a yearly fair at his 
manor. 

South Moulton, in Devonshire, was held by the Martin family by 
service of finding a man with a bow and three arrows to attend the 
Earl of Gloucester when he was hunting in the neighborhood. 

It is believed that from the barons of Cemmaes, whose ancestor 
was Martin de Tours, are descended those of the family of Martin 
who came to New England. 

More than one knight, or man-at-arms, is recorded in the Roll of 
Battle Abbey as bearing the name of Martin. It is perhaps super- 
fluous to explain of what this roll of Battle Abbey consisted. On 
October 4, A. D. 1066, the battle of Hastings was fought, and William 
the Norman was seated upon the throne of England under the historic 
title of William the Conqueror. Close by the field of Hastings William 
caused a stately pile to be erected, which was named Battle Abbey in 
commemoration of his victory. A roll, or catalogue, was prepared, in 
which was carefully recorded the names and titles of the Norman 
chivalry who had followed William's banner in the enterprise. This 
was the famous Roll of Battle, or "Battel," Abbey. It has been of ines- 
timable service to the herald, the genealogist, and the historian. Some 
portions of the abbey still remain. 

Battle Abbey was dedicated to St. Martin. In the "Chronicles of 
Robert of Gloucester" are the lines: 

"And ther as the bataile was 

An Abbey he let rere, 
Of Saint Martin for the soules 

That there slayn were." 

The patron saint of the family is St. Martin, the son of a Roman 
military tribute, who was born at Sabaria, a city in Hungary, about 
A. D. 316. The saint attained great celebrity on account of his 
sanctity. The festival of St. Martin, which occurs November 11, was 
instituted by Pope Martin, about A. D. 650. Upon that day the casks 
of new wine were tapped. 

Our English ancestors kept the feast by the consumption of 
roasted goose. The old tradition is that St. Martin hid himself on 
account of his unwillingness to become a bishop, but his retreat was 
discovered through a goose.

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

No less than seven churches in London and Westminster are 
dedicated to St. Martin. The excessive admiration of the saint led to 
many towns being named in his honor, and pious parents, when bestow- 
ing his name in baptism, felt that they had insured a potent protector 
for the new-born child. 

The variations of the name are Martyn, Marttin, Marten, Mar- 
tain, Marteen, Martine and Martin. 

The immigrant ancestor was John Martin, one of the founders 
of the town of Swansea, Massachusetts. He had five sons and four 
daughters, each of whom married and had a family. Robert Martin, 
in 1640, settled at Weymouth, Massachusetts, afterwards Rehoboth. 
Among other early settlers of the Martin family were Abraham, Isaac, 
Richard, and Samuel. The latter was born in Lancashire, England, 
May 2, 1760, and was a son of Richard Martin, nicknamed "Mad 
Dick," who was a member of Parliament. Samuel Martin's wife was 
Jane Trotter, daughter of a landed proprietor of Belfast, Ireland. 

From the bequests of Abraham Martin, who died in 1670, it may 
be inferred that he was a Puritan of the good old stock and solicitous 
for the welfare of the colony. He left three pounds, ten shillings, for 
the "pastours ;" one pound "towards the incompassing of the burying 
ground;" ten shillings to be laid out in the making of a bier, and one 
pound "for the procurement of a bell to call the people to God's wor- 
ship." In those early days, before the introduction of bells, it was 
customary to beat the drum to give notice of the time of public wor- 
ship. It is, therefore, possible that the colony was indebted to a Martin 
for its first church bell. 

The Bible of John Martin, the immigrant, is still extant. This he 
left to all his children, but its home was to be with the eldest son. 
Similar provision was made for another valuable volume, the "Book 
Grantham," as he calls it in his will. This book, which is now in the 
possession of a descendant, is an exposition of the views of the Bap- 
tists, and was written in 1678 by a Thomas Grantham, of London. 
On the margins of the leaves of the book are various curious inscrip- 
tions, written by members of the family, whose penmanship was 
unique, orthography sui generis, and punctuation nil. 

The most important legend is this: 

"You all my friends desired are to wash your hands and read 
with care." 

[146] 



MARTIN FAMILY 

On another page is written : 

"Manasseh Martin, his book, the 9th part; my father gave this 
book to his 9 children and i am his 4th son, Manasseh Martin." 

On one of the last pages is written: 

"I find this book was my grait grandfather's John Martin's he 
brought it out of old Ingland. I have perused this book and find it 
worthy of any serus parsons considration." 

The Martins seem to have been a patriotic family; at least, the 
number of those who have applied for pensions, at different times, 
runs into the hundreds. Captain Simeon Martin, of Providence, 
Rhode Island, fourth from immigrant John, was one of the first to 
enlist in the Revolution. He was later adjutant-general and major- 
general of the militia of his State, and at one time Lieutenant-Gov- 
ernor. 

Ebenezer Martin served in the first brigade of Massachusetts, 
1 78 1. Captain George Martin was engaged in scouting expeditions. 
Another George Martin was deputy quartermaster in the Revolution. 

Martins also served in the Indian wars. A John Martin was in- 
terpreter of the Indian campaign during King Philip's war, and a 
Richard Martin advanced £1 5s. 4d. towards carrying on the war 
against Philip. 

Upon the Martin arms appear two red bars on a white or silver 
shield, or in the language of heraldry : Argent, two bars, gules. 

Crest : A red star of six points, or an estoile gules. 

This coat-of-arms is found cut on a tombstone in Copp's Hill 
graveyard, Boston, with simply the name Martyn underneath. 

At what time or for what particular achievement these arms were 
bestowed is not known, but in 1675, in "The Baronage of England," 
these arms were given with an account of the Somersetshire family of 
Martin. 

A Michael Martin, born at Pembroke, and living in Boston, 1700, 
used this coat-armor. 

William Martin of Woodbury, Connecticut, 1680, bore: Gules, on 
a chevron, or, three talbots passant, sable. 

Crest : On a globe, or, a falcon rising argent, gorged with a ducal 
coronet. 

The arms ascribed to Colonel John Martin of Virginia are: 
Gules, a chevron, between three crescents, argent. 

[147] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

No crest is given. Colonel Martin was a burgess from Caroline 
County, 1738, and from King William County, 1752. He married 
Martha Burwell. 

According to heraldic lore, a star is supposed to symbolize the 
Creator, its rays, which point in every direction, indicating the all- 
pervading attributes of the Supreme Being. The presence, therefore, 
of a star in a coat-of-arms implies the existence of the presumption of 
pre-eminent qualities in its possessor. Gules, or red, signifies strength 
or boldness ; the spotless white of argent, chaste and virtuous qualities, 
and, when combined with red, purity and courage.

IVINELY good" is the meaning of Osgood, which is of 
Saxon origin. Os is God, or the Divinity. The word 
in the Norse tongue is quite similar — "as" — pro- 
nounced "ouse." Other words derived from os are 
Osbert, "handsome as a god"; Ostgood, "good host"; 
Osmuna, "divine protection"; Oswald, "divine 
power." Then there are other forms — Osburn, Osborne, Osland, Os- 
more, Ostrom, Ostrander. Variations of Osgood or Osgoode are Os- 
got, Osegod and Ossgood. The Latin form is Osgotus. Two old 
variations of the name are Osgith and Osyth. 

The King of Northumbria in 612 was Oswy. He rang many 
changes on the name, some of which were Oswin, Osino, Oswius, Os- 
weus, Oswin and Osguid. His successor some years later was Oswulf 
or Osulf. 

Before the Norman Conquest Clapa Osgod was living at Lam- 
beth, and it was at the marriage feast of his daughter, Gytha, in 1402, 
that Harthacnut, or "Hardicanute," died, as he drained his goblet. 
Osgod was second only to the king in power. 

After the battle of Hastings the Saxon monks Osgod and Alrik, 
removed Harold's remains to their monastery at Waltham. In 
Domesday Book mention is made of several Osgoods, holding lands 
in a number of counties. Osgot was a great landed proprietor, prob- 
ably one of the Saxons who made his peace with the Conqueror, and 
was confirmed in his possessions. Robertus Osegood was a burgess 
of Wiltshire, living in the thirteenth century. In 13 16 Adam de Os- 
godby, of Yorkshire, was keeper of the great seal. 

For two centuries the Osgood family has been a power in Massa- 
chusetts and New York. 

One ancestor was John, who came over in 1638. He came from 
Herrell, or Wherwell, near Andover, and is said to have named An- 

[149]

dover, Massachusetts, which town he helped to found. His was the 
second house there, and religious services were held in it until the 
church was built. The property has been in possession of the family 
until within the last few years. According to tradition, John "feared 
neither the theological devil nor the red ones" who prowled in the 
neighborhood. He went to church with his musket, and he and his 
sons went armed to the teeth when trouble with the Indians threatened. 
John Osgood was a religious enthusiast who "devoted all his leisure to 
the glory of God," as it has been expressed. No better type of the 
God-fearing, stout-hearted pioneer can be found. He was the first 
representative for Andover to the General Court, 1651. 
\> Another ancestor was Christopher Osgood — or Ossgood, as the 
name was more commonly spelled in colonial times. He and his 
wife, Margaret, were the first settlers in the town of Ipswich, Massa- 
chusetts. Another pilgrim was William Osgood, who went to Salis- 
bury, Massachusetts. 

It is said that the three Osgoods were brothers. It is a somewhat 
singular fact that each reared a family of two sons and four daugh- 
ters. A curious document is Christopher's will, proved in 1650. "My 
wish is that my daughters do not marry without the desire of my wife, 
and the consent of my overseers, and that their several portions be 
paid when they are 20 years old, if they be not married before that." 

All the Osgoods educated their sons well, sending them to the 
best Boston schools and to college. Nineteen were graduates of Har- 
vard before 1834, and eight at other New England colleges. Few of 
the family have cared for a commercial career, although it may be men- 
tioned that the first mills on the Concord River were built by Christo- 
pher Osgood ; nor have the clash and struggle of political life appealed 
to them. One characteristic is a strong religious nature, with the result 
that a large number have chosen the ministry of the gospel — so many, 
indeed, that the name has a distinctly religious sound. 

The Osgoods have ever been staunch patriots. Captain John, son 
of John the first, was one of the number imprisoned by Andross during 
the opposition to the taxation of 1687. Colonel John and Captain 
Peter Osgood were members of the committee which drew up resolu- 
tions against the stamp act. Peter was a leading member of the com- 
mittee formed to encourage home manufactures. He would have noth- 

[150]

ing to do with English importations. Yankee-made articles were good 
enough for him — everything else was superfluous. 

Massachusetts Revolutionary rolls of those who flew to arms upon 
the "Lexington Alarm" give the names of six Osgoods from Andover, 
eight from Salisbury, and twelve from other towns. Under "Miscel- 
laneous Service" Benjamin Osgood "marched 26 miles from home," 
Thomas "enlisted October 16, 1777, discharged October 18, 20 miles 
from home." 

Samuel Osgood, of Andover, the fifth in descent from John, com- 
manded a company of minute men at Lexington and Concord, and 
served on many important committees in the Provincial Congress. He 
helped to frame the Constitution of the United States, and was a mem- 
ber of the Cabinet. This position, however, he resigned when the capi- 
tal was removed from New York to Philadelphia. He was conspicu- 
ous in all public movements. The first two names on the list of incor- 
porators of the present public school system of New York are those of 
De Witt Clinton and Samuel Osgood. Samuel was first Postmaster- 
General of the United States, and at his house, 1 Cherry Street, Wash- 
ington stayed when he came to New York for his inauguration. 

Another Samuel Osgood, born in 1812, is regarded as one of the 
literary lights of the family. Samuel is a name of honor ; the repre- 
sentative in art is Samuel, born 1808. Many of his canvases are 
treasured in the great public collections of the country. His wife was 
Frances Sargent Locke, better known by her pen name, "Fanny For- 
rester." 

One of the few poems of merit suggested by the Civil War was 
written by Kate Putnam Osgood. "Driving Home the Cows" was its 
title, and it was copied by nearly every journal in the country. In the 
realm of philanthropy we find the name of Helen Osgood, of Boston, 
who won fame and praise for her patriotic labors. Thaddeus Osgood, 
born in 1775, organized the first church in Buffalo and founded many 
others. The great philanthropist, George Peabody, was of Osgood 
lineage. 

Martha Osgood, a Colonial belle and beauty, furnishes the ro- 
mance for the family history by having been obliging enough tp elope, 
in true heroic style, from a second-story window, with her lover, Enoch 
Poor, the General Poor who commanded a regiment at Bunker Hill. 

[152] 



OSGOOD FAMTLY 

Her sister, Dorcas, married General Dearborn, a name also honored 
in the history of the early struggles of our country. 

The old-fashioned names, Eunice, Lois, Polly, Dolly, and Susan- 
nah have many representatives in this family. Less common, but more 
curious, are the names Apphia, Farina, Lana, Zuriah and Sabinet. 
In one family we find the three sisters, Prudence, Patience and Relief. 
The Beau Brummel of the family was Dr. Kendall Osgood, surgeon 
in a Revolutionary regiment. Afterward he went to Peterborough, 
New Hampshire, to practice his profession, but his dress worked his 
undoing, and he was obliged to abandon medicine and take up farm- 
ing. His every-day garb was a red broadcloth coat, buff vest, buckskin 
trousers, silver knee buckles, silk stockings, wig, and cocked hat. The 
good doctor was so far from resenting the slight put upon him and his 
rainbow attire that he left $1,000 by will to the town. 

The arms represented belonged to John, the pioneer. They are: 
Argent, three garbs, in a double tressure, flory counterflory, gules, 
doubled argent. 

Crest: A demi-lion, rampant, proper, supporting a garb, gules. 

In heraldry, the garb denotes plenty, and that the first bearer of 
the arms did deserve well for his hospitality. Another symbolic mean- 
ing is that "the harvest of first hopes had been secured." The tressure 
flory is an emblem signifying preservation or protection. It is borne 
in the arms of Scotland, and the legend is that it was given to Achailus, 
King of Scotland, by Charlemagne, in order to signify that the French 
lilies should defend the Scottish lion. The double tressure was first 
assumed by Robert Stuart, to testify his approval of the alliance which 
he had renewed with Charles V. of France. The lion has always held 
a high place in heraldry as an emblem of deathless courage. The hel- 
met denotes wisdom and surety in defense. As to the colors, gules 
stands for fortitude, and argent, for peace and security.

T IS a tradition, if nothing more, that Savage was a 
name introduced into England by a person, thus 
called, in the train of Isabella of France, who became 
the queen of Edward II. Earlier settlements, how- 
ever, had been made by the Savages, for a knight of 
the name founded the family in Ireland when de Cour- 
cey made his invasion. 

Le Sauvage was a sobriquet of early times in France. It implied 
a certain brusqueness of manner, and from this, doubtless, the sur- 
name arose. Those who try to be funny at the expense of the Savage 
family tell stories which, however, may be taken with a grain of salt, 
several grains, indeed. One story is that a gentleman of fortune, in 
Kent, rejoiced in the name of "Savage Bear, Esq." Born a Bear, his 
mother wished to perpetuate her family name of Savage, and gave it to 
her son for his Christian name. 

• Another story teller shows us a list of names which, arranged for 
"ready reference," like a directory, appears this way : "Sharp Walter ; 
Smart Isabella ; Savage Solomon." 

One seat of the Savage family is in Worcester, England — Elmley 
Castle. In Cheshire "they have long been people of rank and title" ; 
Lukesland House, and Ardchin Castle, Devon, and Lisanoure Castle, 
Antrim, are seats of the Savages. 

Lord Savage, of the Little Ards, living about 1550, was a man of 
affairs. There is a book called "The Savages of the Ards." 

The Savages here trace back to Major Thomas of Boston, 1635, 
who came from Chester, or to John of Hartford, who married Eliza- 
beth Dubbin, "ye iod. of febru, 1652." Dubbin is a name to give one 
pause. Perhaps you prefer its original French form, D'Aubin, or 
Daubin. John probably hailed from England, and he was first a mem- 
ber of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was afterwards at Hartford 

[154] 



SAVAGE FAMILY 

and Middletown. In May, 1654, "he was mayd free/' and living at 
Hartford. No one can say a word against John, except that he didn't 
know his own mind when it came to spelling his name. He begins his 
will Sanedg, and ends it Sanidg. Savige, Savidge, Savadge, and 
Sauage are other variations in colonial records. Sauvage is the French 
form, and in Canada we find many Sauvages. In the United States 
Savage and Savidge are the usual forms. 

In 1680 John had over a thousand acres of land on the Connecticut 
River, and he helped build the Middletown church. 

"Sargnt. Jno. Savidg" is the way we find his name in one record. 
He died in 1684, and left "to his loving wife Elizabeth Sauedg, my 
now dwelling hous and horn lott." To son William, "one peice of up- 
land, adioyning to Israeli Willcocks (seaven acre)." John was his 
eldest son, and "NathaniH" was another son, who was to have the home 
lot after his mother's "decease." Elizabeth, the widow, was executrix 
of the will, which shows that women had some rights even in those 
days of no vote. 

Samuel Hall and Captain Nathaniel White witnessed the will, 
which was in the handwriting of Captain White, "long the most im- 
portant citizen of Upper Middletown." 

John Savage had a kersey coate, valued at fifteen shillings, ac- 
cording to the inventory. "One smoothing iron, 2sh., and one Large 
bible and other books, i5sh.," are items of the inventory, which was 
made by Captain White, William Ward, and Gils Hamlin. The total 
value of personal property was £480, issh., 6d. 

Besides three sons, John left six fair daughters. 

Marriage connections of the Savages include the Kirbys, Gibsons, 
Frosts, Knapps, and Montagues. The first savings bank in Boston, 
and the second in the United States, was founded by James Savage, 
antiquary, born 1784, a descendant of Major Thomas. 

The Savages should have no trouble in proving their eligibility to 
membership with patriotic societies of various kinds. Revolutionary 
officers include Captain Abijah, who had also been in the Canadian 
expedition, and was taken prisoner at Quebec. Captain Abijah was 
an officer in the guard of Lafayette, and on the latter's visit to this 
country, entertained him as his guest. Abijah was deputy to the Gen- 
eral Assembly. He married Martha Strickland Torrey, and they had 
fourteen children. Abijah had several brothers in the Revolution —

SAVAGE FAMILY 

Gideon was one, and Nathan another. A representative of the Penn- 
sylvania Savages was Lieutenant John ; of the Virginia family, Joseph, 
surgeon's mate. 

The journal of Corporal Gideon Savage, who was at Valley Forge, 
is extant, and mighty interesting reading. Nathan Savage, "the 
archer," was as good a shot as any Indian, and his deeds of prowess 
were the theme of song and story. Hiel Savage, a soldier of '76, was 
one of the founders of the New York branch of the family. He made 
his home in Saratoga County after the close of the war. His father 
was Ebenezer, fourth from John the first, and he held office at Mid- 
dletown, Connnecticut, was a surveyor, and the proud father of ten. 

The coat-of-arms illustrated is blazoned: Argent, six lioncels [or 
small lions], rampant, sable, three, two, and one. 

Crest: Out of a ducal coronet, or, a lion's gamb [or limb], erect, 
sable. 

Motto: A te pro te — "From thee, for thee." This is the coat- 
armor ascribed to Major Thomas Savage of Boston, and was granted 
in 1600. Another Savage motto is Fortis atque f idelis. Some branches 
of the family display arms quartered with those of the King, Bennett, 
Welstead, and Christian families.

N SCOTLAND and the north of England tod is a fox, 
and todhunter a foxhunter. From this must we seek 
the origin of the name Todd? 

The first to assume it as a surname was perhaps 
a keen sportsman. He followed the hounds, or was a 
foxhunter. Tod is a name occurring in the writings 
of Wyclif f e, also Todman. We have other forms of the name, Todt or 
Todte, for one, and the compounds Todcastle, Todenham, and Todle- 
bru. 

A good story is told of a market gardener of Middlesex who was 
brought before a magistrate for not having printed on his cart his 
name, his place of residence, and the words "taxed cart." In defense, 
the gardener said that he had complied with the law in every particu- 
lar, as the Court could judge from inspection of his cart, upon which 
was the following legend : 

"A Most Odd Act on a Taxed Cart." 

This looked startling, not to say contumaceous, until it was ex- 
plained that it could be rendered : 

"Amos Todd, Acton, a Taxed Cart." 

Who have helped to make the name illustrious ? To mention but 
a few, one of the best known Irish scholars of his day — he was born 
in 1805 — was James Henthorn Todd, consulted both by statesmen and 
theologians. Henry John Todd was editor of Milton; he also edited 
Johnson's dictionary, and added several thousand words. 

Robert Bentley Todd, in the early part of the nineteenth century, 
was a physician of high repute, and his statue may be seen at King's 
College Hospital. David Todd had a world-wide reputation as an 

[158] 



TODD FAMILY 

astronomer; Isaac Todhunter was a mathematician, whose treatises 
had an enormous circulation. 

Shall we also mention Mary Evans Todd, the "Mary" of Cole- 
ridge's verse? She was not a Todd by birth, to be sure, but the wife 
and the mother of one — the mother of Elliott D'Arcy Todd, of York- 
shire, which for centuries has been the stronghold, so to speak, of the 
Todds. Can there be any connection between the name of the family 
and that of a town in the West Riding of Yorkshire — Todmorden? 
The town also dates back to Edward III., and even prior to his reign. 

From Yorkshire came the progenitors of the American family. 
One was Christopher, who was an important personage in New Haven 
almost from the year of its settlement. He was the son of William 
Todd, who was the son of William Todd, and he came over with his 
wife, Grace, and several children about 1639. What is now the campus 
of Yale College was part of Christopher's estate. Many of his de- 
scendants now live in New Haven. Agreeably to the traditional origin 
of his name, Christopher bore for arms three fox's heads. 

The Massachusetts branch of the Todd family dates back to John, 
who also came from Yorkshire. He settled in Rowley, Massachusetts, 
in 1637, with his wife, Susannah, and six children. He was a repre- 
sentative to the general court for many years. He bore, for arms, a 
fox, rampant, with a dove for crest, and the motto: "By Cunning, 
Not by Craft." 

Descendants of Adam Todd may claim Scotch ancestry, for he 
was born in the Highlands and wore the Highland garb. The date of 
his arrival in the New World is not known, but he died in 1765, leav- 
ing a widow and four children — Adam, James, Sarah, and Margaret. 

In "Women of the Revolution" we read of Sarah, Adam Todd's 
wife. Their home was in Cliff street, New York. When the British 
took possession of the city she left it, but quickly returned when she 
heard that a servant, whom she had left in charge of her house, was 
passing herself off as the mistress and was taking boarders. She 
remained through the war, and, with her daughters, was a ministering 
angel to prisoners and the wounded in hospitals. 

Her house was called "rebel headquarters" by the British, and an 

officer said of her and her daughters: "They are the d rebels in 

New York." To the house of her daughter, Mrs. Margaret Whetten, 
was first brought the news of peace to the citizens of New York. Mrs.

TODD FAMILY 

Todd received a letter from Washington, expressing thanks and grati- 
tude in behalf of the country, and asked leave to breakfast with her. 
During the meal he rose twice to thank her for her devoted loyalty. 
She is buried in St. Paul's churchyard, New York. 

Many interesting anecdotes have been handed down in the family 
regarding Revolutionary days, and the part she and her daughters took 
in those times that tried men's souls. 

Some British soldiers were once in her house, drinking, and asked 
her for a toast. "Why, we eat toast," she replied, and with so much 
simplicity that they supposed her really ignorant of the meaning of the 
word, and insisted no further. Her ingenuity in avoiding the necessity 
of pledging her enemies recalls the story of a lady, who, obliged to give 
a toast in the presence of British officers, pledged "to the baker's 
dozen" — meaning the thirteen Colonies. 

"The sword of the Lord and Washington will prevail," was Mrs. 
Todd's expression of her faith in the righteousness of the cause. 

Her daughter, Sarah, married a Brevoort, one of a family owning 
a large slice of New York City, whose name is perpetuated in various 
ways in the metropolis — a family which helped to build up Astor and 
Vanderbilt connections, it may also be mentioned. Adam Todd, 
second, married Margaret Dodge^ daughter of Jeremiah and Margaret 
Vanderbilt Dodge. The wife of the first Astor in this country was 
Sarah Todd. He was John Jacob Astor, who came from Waldorf, 
Baden, in 1783. 

It is not alone the women of the family who have a Revolutionary 
record; the men also played their parts. Timothy, of Vermont, a sur- 
geon, was at the battle of Bennington, and a member of the Governor's 
council. Eben Todd, or Tod, as the name frequently appears in Co- 
lonial records, served through the war. Thomas, of Virginia, was also 
a member of the Continental army. His son, Charles, was one of the 
four aides who rendered General Harrison most important services 
during his campaign. He was afterward Minister to Russia. The 
Kentucky branch of the Todd family also has its war record. There 
were Lieutenant Levi, and his brother, Colonel John, good and brave 
soldiers. Levi was the father of Robert, the father of Mrs. Abraham 
Lincoln. 

In the War of 1812 George Todd was lieutenant-colonel. Llis 
son, David, was Governor of Ohio. William Todd, of New Hamp-

shire, born in 1823, won the first victory in a constitutional conven- 
tion, single handed, on the method of drawing seats, and followed it 
up by drawing the best seat in the House. This gave him prestige, 
which ready wit and common sense increased, and it was unusual for 
a convention to vote down anything which he supported. A preacher, 
author, and educator was John Todd of Vermont, whose " Students' 
Manual" had a great vogue. He helped to found Mount Holyoke 
Seminary. 

The arms reproduced, that of Christopher, the settler, and now 
borne by the Connecticut Todds, are: Argent, three fox's heads, 
couped, gules, a border vert. 

Crest: A chapeau, or cap of maintenance, gules, turned up, 
ermine, a fox sejant, proper. 

Motto : Oportet vivere — "It is necessary to live." 

Burke's Peerage credits the Todd family with eight coats-of-arms.

MABEL THACHER ROSEMARY WASHBURN 
Genealogical Editor 

PART IV 
(Concluded from Volume 2, Number 1) 

HE proof that Henry Funk, who died in Lancaster in 
1800 (whose biography and ancestry have been 
described in preceding issues of The Journal of 
American Genealogy) was the Henry Funk, son of 
Henry, and grandson of Henry Funk, the Colonist of 
1 71 7, was obtained by a process of elimination of all 
contamporaries of the same name in Lancaster County. 

In 1747 and 1750 there was living in Manor Township, Lancas- 
ter County, Henry Funk, a minor, over whom in those years a guardian 
was appointed (See record of Orphans Court, Lancaster County, Pa., 
Miscellaneous Book, 1742-60, p. 3, as given above, under the Second 
Generation). It is not possible, that this Henry Funk a minor in 1750, 
was the Henry Funk of Manor Township of whom we have record, 
who made his will in 1787, and in that will wrote of himself as "being 
far advanced in Years." It would be impossible for a person of minor 
years in 1750, and probably just over fourteen years of age to write of 
himself in 1787 as being of great age. 

It is therefore evident from this fact that Henry Funk, minor in 
1750, and Henry Funk, of "advanced years" in 1787, were not one and 
the same person. We have the will of Henry Funk, dated 14th Aug- 
ust, 1787, and proved 8th November, 1788 with several other docu- 
ments some referring to the settlement of his estate in which his chil- 
dren are mentioned. That he owned land in Manor Township is evi- 
denced by a warrant for land and a patent, both dated 1760, and a 
deed of 1781, wherein he is mentioned with his wife, Magdalen, and

that he is not identical with Henry Funk who died in 1800, is evidenced 
by the proof of his will in 1788. 

There follow the said documents referring to the Henry Funk of 
Manor Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, of "advanced 
years" in 1787.

There was another Henry Funk in Manor Township contempor- 
ary with Henry Funk who made his will in 1787, and Henry Funk of 
the will of 1800, who was, however, entirely distinct from both of 
these above mentioned men. This Henry Funk, son of Martin Funk, 
was born in 1756. The Bible record, (see below) copied and trans- 
lated from the Bible of Martin Funk, his father, now in the possession 
of one of his descendants, reads — "In the year 1756, my son Henry 
Funck was born." As Henry Funk, who died in 1800, the ancestor 
of this lineage in the Third Generation, was a minor in 1750, this 
Henry Funk, born in 1756 cannot be identified with him. 

Bible Record 

A translation of the Family Record of Martin Funck, copied from the 
family Bible of Martin Funck, in the possession of his great grand 
daughter Miss Mattie Funk of Millersville, Lancaster County, Pa. 
The copy of the record was made by M. T. R. Washburn of the Frank 
Allaben Genealogical Company who visited Miss Mattie Funk, April 
3, 191 1. The children of this Bible record are identical with the chil- 
dren of Martin Funk mentioned by him in his will which was proved 
1790. 

The first page of the Bible is a title page, ornamented with sym- 
bolic scriptural subjects. The title is in the center of the surrounding 
decorations below it being words indicating that the Bible was printed 
in Basel. The next page is also a title page printed in red and black. 
This title states that the Bible contains all of the Holy Scriptures, the 
Old and New Testaments, etc. Below this title a Coat-of-Arms ap- 
pears. It has elaborate mantling, and a crest which seems to be a 

[178] 



FUNK FAMILY 

demi-horse in profile facing dexter. In front of the horse and at his 
back are what appear to be wings, the inner side being toward the 
horse. On the wing before him is a tower, battlemented at the top. 
On the wing behind him are three roundles. The shield is quarterly, 
the motto below being "Festine Lente" Beneath the coat-of-arms the 
word "Basel" again occurs, this evidently being the name of the place 
of the printing of the Bible. The arms may be those of that city, and 
the following names near the lower edge of the page are the names of 
the printers with the date of the year in which the Bible was printed. 
"Emanuel und Joh. Rudolph Thurenson (?) — Im Yahr Christi 
MDCCXXXIV," in the year of Christ 1734. Then several printed 
pages follow and a list of the Books of the Bible, succeeded by the 
page on which the family record of Martin Funck appears. The record 
is written in the German language. The Bible is in excellent condi- 
tion and it is interesting to note that it has remained with the descend- 
ants of the original owner for such a period of time. It was printed at 
a time when such volumes were valued highly, and much attention 
given to their production in Germany and Switzerland. 

The record begins, "Anno 1716."

streets, Lancaster, Pa., April 7, 191 1 (who told it to the present com- 
piler on April 8, 191 1), that her grandfather, Henry Funk, born in 
1756, whose wife was Annie Myers, had a daughter who married 
Christian Heidlauf. This coincides with the will of Henry Funk, 
proved November 26, 1825, wherein he mentions his son-in-law Chris- 
tian Heidlauf, and proves that Henry Funk, born in 1756, was the 
Henry Funk, whose will was made and proved in 1825, (see will as 
given below), and that he could not have been the Henry Funk whose 
will was made in 1787, and proved in 1788, neither could he have been 
the Henry Funk who died in 1800, as described in the preceding issue 
of this magazine. 

Miss Mattie Funk, granddaughter of Henry Funk (who was son 
of Martin Funk of the Bible Record), and apparently about seventy- 
five years of age, told the present writer on April 3, 191 1, that her 
father, Martin Funk, son of Henry Funk, lived in Manor Township, 
that her grandfather, Henry Funk, had always lived in the same 
township, and that her grandmother was Annie Myers. Miss Mattie 
Funk lent to the present writer loose pages from the old family Bible 
belonging to her great-grandfather, Martin Funk. These pages con- 
tained the family records of the family of Martin Funk, in the hand- 
writing of Martin Funk, and included the title-page of the Bible. A 
translation of these records, with a description of the title-page, have 
been given above. 

The following will of Henry Funk of Manor Township, Lancaster 
County, Pennsylvania, was dated the 5th of November, 1825, and 
proved the 26th of November, 1825. 

Will of "Henry Funk of Manor township, Lancaster County," 
"tract of land. . . .whereon I now reside, situate in the Township of 
Manor afforsaid to my son Martin Funk. . . .land. . . .whereon my 
son-in-law Christian Heidlauf now resides, .... to my son John Funk,

years, .... all my children, viz, Martin, John, Elizabeth, Mary and 
Ann. . . .trusty friend John Shopp son of Henry Shopp, and my son

The following is a release from the heirs of Henry Funk, of the 
will of 1825, to John Funk, his son, 7 April, 1827. 

Matin Funck, Christian Heidlauf, and Anna, his wife, Mary

Funck late of the township of Manor. . . .deceased" said Henry hav-

Henry's son-in-law, Christian Fleidlauf, was living at the time of will, 
if said John should pay for same $550, said Matin Funck, Christian 
Heidlauf, and wife, Anna, Mary Funck, and Elizabeth Funck, ac- 
knowledge having received their shares in the valuation of sd. land, 
and release John Funck from all claims, etc.

Recorded 7 April, 1827. 

The son of the Henry Funk (who died in 1800), named Henry, 
removed from Lancaster County, in all probability, before 1790, as 
he is not mentioned in the Lancaster County Census of that year. He 
was in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, at a date soon after the arrival 
there of his elder brother John, who was taxed there in 1786. 

The first United States Census of Pennsylvania, taken in 1790, 
shows only two Henry Funks living in Lancaster County in that year. 
Both were in Manor Township. We have shown that in the peucri 
between 1750 and this time there were but three Henry Funks in Lan- 
caster County, exclusive of Henry Funk, son of the Henry who died 
in 1800). Of these three Henry who died in 1800 and is the An- 

[181I 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

cestor of this Lineage, Henry who died "far advanced in years" in 
1787, and Henry, son of Martin, born in 1756, one had died (1787 or 
1788) before the Census of 1790 was taken. Therefore, one of these 
two Henry Funks mentioned in the Census was Henry who died in 
1800, and the other was Henry who was born in 1756 and who, as 
shown above, died in 1825. Henry Funk who died in 1800 had evi- 
dently not removed from his estate in Manor Township to Lancaster 
Borough until after the year of the Census as he is enumerated therein 
as head of a family in Manor Township. 



' A Henry Funk of Lancaster County was a Revolutionary soldier 
in 1782.

Pa. Archives 5th Series Vol. 7, P. 429. 

While it is not proven to which Henry Funk, living in Manor 
Township, at that date, this record applies, from the records which 
have been given above it seems probable that it refers to Henry Funk, 
Ancestor in the third generation of this Lineage. 

It has been shown that in 1782 there were four of the name of 
Henry Funk in Manor Township, who could have been in a company 
of militia at that time. 

Henry Funk of Manor Township, whose will was made in 1787 
and proved in 1 788.

Henry Funk, a minor in 1747 and 1750, whose will was proved in 
1800. Henry Funk, son of Henry Funk who removed to Franklin 
County, Pa. 

It is not likely that Henry Funk who made his will in 1787, and 
who was "far advanced in years" at that time, was in a company of 
militia in 1782. Henry Funk, born 1756, died 1825, would have been 

[182] 



FUNK FAMILY 

of suitable age to join the militia but there is no knowledge of such 
service in the tradition and records of his granddaughters who would 
apparently have known of such fact had it existed. Henry Funk, (son 
of Henry who died in 1800), who removed to Franklin County, Pa., 
may have enlisted at an early age, but his grandson, Mr. Christian 
Martin Funk of Bascom, Ohio, had no knowledge of Revolutionary 
service on his part. 

Therefore, the only Henry Funk remaining in Lancaster County 
of an age in 1782 to perform military service, which was between the 
age of 18 and 53 years, was Henry Funk, the Ancestor in the Funk 
Lineage in the Third Generation, a minor in 1747 and 1750, who died 
and whose will was proved in 1800. 

There is reason to believe that Henry Funk also did patriotic ser- 
vice as a member of a Revolutionary Committee in Lancaster County. 

"The Continental Congress held at Philadelphia, the 5th of Sep- 
tember, 1774, continued to the 25th of October; 

November 22d, 1774. The Committee of this borough met and the 

following hand bill by them ordered to bee 

put up at all the public places in this county, viz : To the freeholders 
and electors of the county of Lancaster : 'The committee for the bor- 
ough of Lancaster, taking in their consideration the .... recommenda- 
tions of the American Continental Congress, requst that the freehold- 
ers and others qualified to vote for Representatives in Assembly for 
the county of Lancaster, would meet at the Court house in Lancaster 
.... to choose by ballot sixty proper persons for a committee, to ob- 
serve the conduct of all persons touching the general Association of 
the general Congress ; ' 

On. . . . 15th day of December,. . . .a general election was held at 
the borough of Lancaster, for this county, and the following. . . . 

chosen as .... a committee 

nor. . . .John Killhafer, Jacob Wistle, James Jacks " 

[Mombert's History of Lancaster County, Pp. 226-227]. 
Wednesday, November 8th, 1775. 

A number of the members of Committee. .. .assembled at the 

Court house, in Lancaster

.... the following gentlemen thereby appearing to have been duly 

[183] 



THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

chosen in the respective townships as members of Committee in the 

county of Lancaster, viz : In Manor .... Leonard 

Rodfunk, Jacob Ruple Henry Funk. . " [Ibid.] 

The Henry Funk noted in this record may be the Henry Funk, the 
ancestor of this lineage in the Third Generation. Of the four of the 
name in Manor Township in 1782, Henry Funk, who was of great 
age in 1787, was probably, even in 1775, too advanced in years to be 
elected to membership in a committee of observation. As mentioned 
above, there is no knowledge of the fact that Henry Funk, born 1756 
who died 1825, gave patriotic service during the War, and in 1775 he 
was a very young man, and for that reason would scarcely have been 
selected for so responsible a service. 

Henry Funk, son of Henry Funk of the will of 1800, was also 
under age at the commencement of the War, and what more likely 
than that the member elected was Henry Funk, the ancestor of this 
lineage in the Third Generation, who was a man in middle life and of 
suitable age? 

Therefore, it is reasonable to believe that Henry Funk, the An- 
cestor in the Third Generation of this lineage, was a soldier of our 
War for Independence and also did patriotic service on this Revolu- 
tionary Committee.

These Arms, almost identical with those blazoned without Crest (in 
Burke's "General Armory," edition of 1861), for Steven, are ascribed 
to the family of General Adam Stephen, born in Scotland in 1718, 
who died in Virginia in 1791. His Virginia estate is now included in 
West Virginia, at Martinsburg, of which place he was the founder, 
in 1778. 

General Stephen served with Washington in 1754, and both he and 
Washington were given rewards for their service. He was then a 
Captain and Washington a Colonel, but Stephen was promoted to the 
rank of Major at this time. Later he was made Lieutenant-Colonel, 
at the outbreak of the Revolution a Colonel, in 1776, Brigadier-General, 
and in 1777, Major-General. — The Genealogical Editor.

Colonel George Eskridge, a Deputy to the Virginia House of Bur- 
gesses for many years in the first half of the Eighteenth Century, 
was guardian to Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington. 

It is stated that Colonel Eskridge, who died in 1735, came to America 
about 1670, probably from Lancashire. He married, first, Rebecca, 
daughter of Samuel and Margaret (Philpot) Bonum. Rebecca (Bonum) 
Eskridge had a brother, Samuel Bonum, whose wife was Elizabeth 
Johnston, the half-sister of Mary Ball. Colonel Eskridge married, 
second, Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Vaulx. — The Genealogical Editor.

The Rolfe Coat-of-Arms has especial interest to all Americans, for 
it was borne by the family to which belonged John Rolfe, of Virginia, 
husband of the Indian princess, Pocahontas, whose brave and faithful 
friendship for Captain John Smith, whom she saved from death, was 
of the greatest service in the perilous days of early Virginia. Lovely 
in character as in person, there is a shadow of sadness in her history, 
one of the most romantic and extraordinary in American chronicles. 

The Rolfes were of County Norfolk, in England, and their Coat- 
Armor is blazoned: 

Arms — Gyronny of eight, or and azure, on a chief sable three

ENEALOGY is history brought into relation with the 
individual. National chronicles are chronicles of the 
characters, opinions, and deeds of the men and women 
of the nation. 

As Americans, realizing that the deepest love of our 
Country must be based on knowledge of her, — of 
her foundations, her growth, her achievements, and her glory, — we 
should seek to learn, record, and preserve all that concerns the pioneers 
and patriots of America. 

Let us thus pay honor to those splendid, valiant men and women, 
— pilgrims of faith or of adventure, — who, beset by savages and by 
hardships, hewed out of the wilderness a land of ordered peace and 
law! Let us thus show our gratitude to those who made America a 
Nation, winning, by sword and ship, and by their life-blood itself, 
America's right to hold aloft, to all the world, the Lamp of Freedom 
and Justice.

SECOND GENERATION 

{Continued from Volume 2, Number 2) 

HARLES 2 LEEPER (3) (Allen 1 ) was born in Cum- 
berland County, Pennsylvania, about the middle of 
the 1 8th Century. He was probably the second, or 
eldest child of Allen Leeper and Elizabeth Cummins, 
as he and his brother, James, are found in the 
Records of the County before their brother, Allen, 
who, although mentioned first in the will of their father, was probably 
the youngest. The first mention we have of Charles Leeper is in 1769, 
when he obtained a grant of two hundred and fifty acres of land in 
West Pennsborough Township from the Proprietaries, of which the 
following is the deed : 
"Pennsylvania, ss: 

BY THE PROPRIETARIES 

"WHEREAS, Charles Leeper of the County of Cumberland 
hath requested that we would allow him to take up two hundred and 
fifty Acres of Land adjoining John Patton — Allen Leeper — Cather- 
ine Atkinson — James Strahn and the barrens in West Pennsbore 
Township, in the said County [PROVIDED the same Land does not 
lie in, or interfere with, the Manor of Lowther or any other of our 
appropriated Tracts,] for which he agrees to pay to our Use, within 
the Term of Six Months from the Date hereof, at the rate of fifteen 
pounds ten shillings current Money of this Province, for every hundred 
acres; and also to pay to us, our Heirs and Assigns, forever, the 
Yearly Quit-rent of One half-penny Sterling for every acre thereof 
Interest from the first day of March, 1760. 

"These are therefore to authorize and require you to survey, or 
cause to be surveyed unto the said Charles Leeper, at the Place afore-

said, according to the Method of Townships appointed, the said Quan- 
tity of two hundred & fifty Acres 

"Given under my Hand, and the Seal of the Land Office by Vir- 
tue of certain Powers from the said Proprietaries, at Philadelphia, 
this twenty fifth Day of April Anne Domini One Thousand Seven 
Hundred and sixty nine. 

"To John Lukens, Surveyor-General. (signed) "John Penn." 
"IN TESTIMONY, That the above is a copy of the original 
remaining on file in the Department of Internal Affairs of Pennsyl- 
vania, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of said De- 
partment to be affixed at Harrisburg, this twenty fifth day of May, 
A. D. 1910. 

(signed) "James H. Craig, 

(seal) Deputy Secretary of Internal Affairs." 

He was co-executor with his brother, James Leeper, of his fath- 
er's estate (see will, given previously), and as such was frequently 
before the Orphans' Court of Cumberland County L to render his 
account. 

"At an Orphans Court held at Carlisle for the County of Cum- 
berland the fourth day of December in the year of our Lord one thou- 
sand seven hundred and ninety three "Came into Court Charles 

Leeper and James Leeper Executors of the last will and Testament of 
Allen Leeper deceased, and produced an account of their Administra- 
tion and the Court having adjusted and passed the same do find a 
Balance in the hands of the Executors one thousand pounds six shill- 
ings and five pence subject to distribution according to the will. 

"By the court." (Clerk's Office, Carlisle, Cumberland County, 
Pennsylvania, Orphans' Court Docket, Vol. 3, p. 127). 

Charles Leeper was a freeman and taxpayer of West Pennsbor- 
ough Township from 1772 to 1788 (see Tax Roll, given at end). In 
1782 and 1808 his name appears on the tax roll of Hopewell Township, 
although, from the deeds quoted below, it would appear that he was 
a resident of Lurgan Township, Franklin County, sometime prior to 
1796. Lurgan Township was bounded by Cumberland County (see 
County history at end), and it may be that the change of name does 
not mean a change in actual locality, but merelv a subdivision of the

Township or County. He was a man of wealth and position, and was 
elected Sheriff of Cumberland County in 1786. 

"At a meeting of the Supreme Executive Council October 19, 
1786, Charles Biddle, Vice President, presiding General Elec- 
tion for the County of Cumberland .... Charles Leiper .... commis- 
sioned Sheriff .... William Miller .... as securities for Charles Leip- 
er." (Colonial Records, Vol. 15, p. 102). 

Also, "Oct. 20, 1787, Sheriff, Charles Liper " (Ibid, p. 

300). 

Also, "October 29th, 1788, Sheriff Charles Leeper " 

(Ibid, p. 580). 

The names of William, Robert and John Miller all appear as 
going security for the faithful performance of the duties of Sheriff 
by Charles Leeper (Ibid). They were the sons of William and Mar- 
garet Miller, natives of Ulster County, Ireland, who settled in the 
Cumberland Valley, near where Carlisle now stands, in 1729. John 
Miller and his wife, Mary, had four children : William, John, Mary, 
and Margaret Miller, the youngest of whom, Margaret, was the wife 
of Charles Leeper. They were married 4 May, 1775. John Miller 
made his will 5 August, 1775, in which he mentions his son-in-law, 
Charles Leeper (Written memo, of Miller Family). 

At the time of the marriage of Charles Leeper and Margaret 
Miller the Revolution was in full swing and Charles was not dilatory 
in taking his place among the determined wresters of their freedom 
from English service. In 1776 he is recorded as a Captain in the 
Cumberland County Militia (Pennsylvania Archives, 2nd Series, Vol. 
14, p. 388) ; as Captain of the 8th Company, 2nd Battalion, Col. John 
Davis, 31 July, 1777 (Ibid, p. 398), and 14 May, 1778 (Ibid, p. 424). 
As Charles Leeper, Esq., he was enrolled in Captain Alexander Pee- 
ble's Company of Associators ; which was the 3rd of the 6th Battalion, 
Cumberland County Militia, commanded by Colonel James Dunlap, 27 
July, 1782 (Ibid, 5th Series, Vol. 6, p. 434). Charles, Allen, and Will- 
iam Leeper were all enrolled as Associators, 4th Class, in James 
Irwin's Company, 2nd Battalion, in 1781 (Ibid, p. 195). "Charles 
Leeper, Esq.," took the Oath of Allegiance before Judge John Creigh 
on July 8, 1777 (Ibid, 2nd Series, Vol. 14, p. 471). 

Margaret Miller inherited considerable property from her father, 

[216] 



LEEPER FAMILY 

John Miller, and on 23 February, 1779, Charles Leeper and his wife, 
Margaret, dispose of a portion of this land. 

"Charles Leeper of West Pennsborough Township in the County 
of Cumberland and State of Pennsylvania Esquire and Margaret his 
Wife (which said Margaret is the youngest Daughter of John Miller 
late of the Township of sd Tavern-keeper Deceased)" for £2000 sell 
to Robert Semple one half part of two tracts of land, containing to- 
gether 500 acres, 40 perches; the one tract containing 241 acres, 80 
perches, in the aforesaid township, and the other containing 258 3/4 
acres in the same township; the last adjoining land formrely the de- 
ceased John Miller's ; which two tracts the said John Miller acquired 
under a deed poll dated 24 July, 1767. "and whereas the afsd John 
Miller made his Testament and last Will in writing and afterwards 
died, and therein and thereby did devise (inter Alia) in the following 
Words, that is to say, T give and devise and bequeath to my Daughter 
Mary the one half of that Part of my Land now in the Tenure of 
John Gawan (containing in the whole about five hundred Acres, more 
or less, as the same now stands surveyed) to be laid off the North West 
End of said Tract, to her, har Heirs or Assigns for ever. I give 
devise and bequeath to my Daughter Margaret the other half Part 
of said Tract to be laid off the South East End, to her, her Heirs and

August which was in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred 
and seventy five And whereas the afsd Margaret the youngest Daugh- 
ter of the afsd John Miller intermarried with the aforesd Charles 
Leeper," etc. Signed ''Charles Leeper" "Margret Leeper." Dated 
23 February, 1779 (County Clerk's Office, Carlisle, Cumberland 
County, Pa., Deeds, Vol. 1, Book E, pp. 293-96). 

On 12 April, 1798, "Charles Leeper, Esq., and wife Margaret," 
give a quit-claim deed, executed in Franklin County, Pa., to the above 
Robert Semple for the above described tract of land (Ibid, Vol. 1, 
Book M, pp. 586-7). 

The following abstracts of Cumberland County Land Deeds will 
show that Charles Leeper was engaged in extensive real estate transac- 
tions in that county, and indicate the place of his residence during that 
time.

THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY 

8 November, 1779, "Charles Leiper Esqr & Margaret his Wife

Charles Leeper died, presumably, in the year 1818, in which year, 
4 December, his will was probated. The will bears date 26 April . . . . , 
the year being missing, as will be seen in following copy. His wife 
was his sole legatee; no mention of any children appearing in any 
of the documents relating to him. From the diary of Allen 3 Leeper, 
quoted above, and the common thereon by Edward A. Leeper of Fort 
Recovery, Ohio, it appears he had at least two, Allen and Elizabeth. 
Letters of Administration were granted to his widow, Margaret 
(Miller) Leeper, 1 February, 1819; and on 24 July, 1829, to William 
S. Davis, who also, 3 April, 1830, was granted Letters of Administra- 
tion of the estate of Margaret (Miller) Leeper, the date of whose 
death is not known.

eration). 

ii Allen Leeper (see end of Allen Leeper's diary, third genera- 
tion). 

4. William 2 Leeper (Allen 1 ). The identity of this person 
has not been established by the data in hand. He is not mentioned 
among the other children in the will of Allen 1 (which see) ; but in a 
note, written upon the copy of Allen Leeper's diary by Edward A. 
Leeper of Fort Recovery, Ohio, it is stated that "James Leeper was 
the brother of Charles, William and Allen; and the four were the 
sons of Allen, Sr., who was born in 1720 in Co. Down, Ireland." 
Charles and William Leeper are mentioned as freemen of West 
Pennsborough Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, in 1773; 
and Charles, James and William Leeper, freemen of the same Town- 
ship in 1774 (see Tax Roll, at end). William Leeper is found as a 
taxable in West Pennsborough Township until 1779; from 1783 to 
1805 he is found in Shippensburg ; and in 1805 he is mentioned as a 
taxable in Southampton Township ; his heirs being taxed in both these 
latter places in 1808 (Ibid). In Beers' History of Franklin County, 
Pa., the following statement is made. "Lurgan [Township] 1743. . . . 
When formed it embraced its present territory and what is now Letter- 
kenny, Greene and Southampton Townships. . . .Villages. Roxbury 
.... is situated on Condoguinet Creek, at the base of Kittatinny Moun- 
tain. It was laid out by William Leephar about 1778." It will be re- 
membered that Charles Leeper had considerable property at Roxbury 
(see Land Deeds above). William Leeper was a millwright and 
owned a grist-mill in Shippensburg (see Tax Roll). In 1795 he 
disposed of some of his property in Lurgan Township, of which the 
following is the record : 

"24 November, 1795. William Leeper of the Township of Ship- 
pensburg in the County of Cumberland and State of Pennsylvania 
Millwright and Hannah his wife" sold to "Philip Foust of Lurgan 
Township," Franklin County, for £733- 10s., a "messuage or Tenement 
plantation & tract of land. . . .in Lurgan Township aforesaid," bound- 
ing lands of said Philip Foust, James Dunlop, John McKnight, the 
heirs of James McCall, and William McComb, 183 3/8 acres, a tract

to the "said William Leeper" (Deeds, Chambersburg, Pa., Vol. 5, pp. 
10, 11). On pages 9 and 10 of the same authority is the deed of the 
purchase of the above property from James Dunlop by William Leeper 
1 August, 1795. 

On 12 November, 1807, Letters of Administration on the estate 
of William Leeper of Shippensburg Township, were issued to John 
Arthur, Joseph Arthur, and Hannah Leeper, their sureties being Sam- 
uel Weakley and Charles McClure. They filed an accounting 1 1 Sept. 
181 6 (Authority not stated). Hannah Leeper died sometime between 
19 September, 181 7, the date of the following deed, and February 4, 
18 18, when Letters of Administration on her estate were granted to 
John McClay, whose sureties were John Clippinger and George Met- 
zer (Authority not given). 

19 September, 181 7, "Hannah Leeper of Shippensburg in the 
County of Cumberland and State of Pennsylvania," for $1, granted to 
"Benjamin Reynolds. . . .all those two houses and four lots of ground 
... .on the main street in the town of Shippensburg and marked in 
the general plan of the said town No 27, 28 and 47, 48 ... . to hold the 
said two houses and four lots .... In trust to sell and convey the same 
and to apply the money arising from such sale to the payment of all
